The campaign was started by a journalist in Texas following Mr Morgan’s CNN programme of 19 December.
The petition says the talk show host “is engaged in a hostile attack against the US Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment”, which protects an individual’s right to own guns.
“We demand that Mr Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”
Nothing chilling about threatening people’s immigration status if we don’t like what they say. Not in the least!
