Petition to Deport Piers Morgan Gains Internet Fame
ABC News ^ | 12/24/12 | Sarah Parnass

Posted on 12/24/2012 2:07:23 PM PST by jimbo123

A petition asking President Obama to deport CNN anchor Piers Morgan gathered more than 33,000 signatures in just three days.

The petition on the White House’s “We the People” website posted Friday has crossed the 25,000 threshold needed to solicit a response from President Obama. But unlike the petitions to reduce gun violence that Obama addressed last week, this one isn’t likely to receive a favorable response.

The petition takes aim at Morgan for his impassioned defense of proposed gun control legislation on air this week. It accuses him of launching “a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment.”

But according to immigration attorney Mark Schifanelli, it would take more than expressing an opinion on television to get Morgan booted out of the country. The Department of Homeland Security would have the power to start a deportation process on Morgan if it was warranted, Schifanelli said, but even then, there’s no guarantee Morgan wouldn’t win the right to stay in an appeals process.

“He’s got certain rights,” Schifanelli told ABC News Monday. “Even as a foreign national in the United States, he’s afforded various rights under national security law and due process.”

Fat chance. Obama is more likely to Knight him to his royal court than export him home.

I think I signed that petition along with the deport Piers petition and the banning of protests and demonstrations at funerals petition.

He is a criminal in the UK. He participated in phone hacking in the UK..there is solid ground to deport him. We should use that in a second petition.

Hopefully, we can embarrass his butt out of our country. He needs to go to Havana or Pyongyang and read the “news” for them.

34,000 signatures likely exceeds the number of daily viewers for his CNN show.

How about we settle for a good, old-fashioned public horse whipping?

You’re a jackass attention whore and I have no doubt you will continue your position out of vanity and self serving, superiority complex masking your underwhelming man bits.

Blow it out your ass.

We kicked your ass twice because we didn’t believe you were our betters and you can bet your life we helped you twice because we are better human beings of extraordinary and deep conviction in Christ’s utmost call for compassion.

Frankly, I’d actually like to kick your insufferable ass but I couldn’t bring myself to strike someone so afflicted by mental diseases such as turrets, ADD and syphilis.

Just doesn’t seem right.

"Where do I sign to send president and family packing"

Has anyone tried to post any form of 'Birther Style' petition?

If John Lennon had obeyed the INS deportation order that was issue to him he'd very probably be alive today.That's certainly not to suggest that anything’s gonna happen to the lighweight but sometimes it's best to be where you're wanted.

Mr Piers Morgan’s petition (whoever he is; I thought Piers Morgan was a stock brokerage) has to get in line. Before it is a White House petition promoted here thrice, on three separate threads, by the same member (pun intended) to impeach President Obama. The White House is working on that one.

Pissy Morgan and his people come from a Country who have always been [subjects] of a “King” and if this pussy believes the American people will surrender their sovereignty to a “King” he is as mentally deranged as Obama who wants to confiscate America's firearms!

Good luck with both!
