The number used to be 25,000 signatures
The White House recently increased the number of signatures needed on its "We the People" petition site from 25,000 to 100,000.
"We the People"
is a website where users can create and apply online signatures to petitions. When the number of signatures on a petition exceeded 25,000, it will receive a comment from the White House.
When the site launched in 2011, only 5,000 signatures were needed. As the number of users grew, the number was raised to 25,000. Now, the site has grown even more and 100,000 is the new number to beat.
However, any petitions that were existing before the new 100,000 rule will remain under the 25,000 signature rule. As of right now, there are a little under 40 petitions that have passed the 25,000 signature mark.

"No. We are the executive branch, we don't enforce laws."
Wait, what? The executive branch
is supposed to enforce laws
. What branch should, if not the executive? I hope you meant that as a stab at this administration's highly selective approach to law enforcement. Immigration laws? Naw. Defense of Marriage Act? Naw. Voter Intimidation
Black Panthers? Fuggedaboutit. Government sponsored arms trafficking to Mexican drug cartels? Let's pretend it never happened... You get the picture.
