In the days since the November 6 presidential election, there has been a surge in petitions submitted for states to secede from the United States of America. The White House has a section called We the People a page that allows citizens to create or sign petitions for causes they strongly support. There are now petitions representing more than 30 states, including Michigan, that have been submitted. Citizens of those states are suggesting that their state secede from the United States of America, and form their own government.
Petitions must reach at least 25,000 signatures gathered within a thirty day window, to be reviewed by the White House. If that number of signatures is reached, the White House reviews the petitions and issues a response.
