New White House petition created to keep Piers Morgan in U.S.

Apparently not every American…or British citizen, for that matter…wants to see CNN host Piers Morgan deported back to the United Kingdom.

A new White House petition was launched yesterday calling on President Obama to keep Morgan in the United States.

The petition reads:

We want to keep Piers Morgan in the USA. There are two very good reasons for this. Firstly, the first amendment. Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back. Actually there is a third. It will be hilarious to see how loads of angry Americans react.

According to Salon magazine the petition was posted by British citizens, and several of the signatories are not identified by a city or state on the website.

The petition is a direct response to one launched last week after the CNN host made several controversial comments on his show and Twitter feed about gun control in the United States. In addition to the comments Morgan berated two prominent anti-gun control supporters on national television.

More than 72,000 people have already signed the original petition, nearly triple the number required for the White House to consider it.

As of press time, less than 400 have signed the “Keep Piers in the U.S.A.” petition.
