More than 31,000 Americans have signed a petition calling for British TV host Piers Morgan to be deported.
They are angry about his advocacy of gun control, in the wake of the 14 December shootings in Connecticut.
The petition followed an interview with Larry Pratt, director of Gun Owners of America, on CNN - in which Mr Morgan called his guest "a dangerous man".
Petitions posted on the White House website only require 25,000 signatures to get a response from the government.
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."
Mr Morgan has responded, repeatedly, on his Twitter account.
"If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?" the 47 year old joked after the 25,000-signature threshold was passed.

Personally I find this petition ridiculous, what are your thoughts? >_<
