The White House has issued a written statement regarding a petition to deport Piers Morgan from the US which has been signed by more than 100,000 Americans:
The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one.
In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.
The statement came as CNN aired Morgan's fiery interview with pro-gun ownership activist Alex Jones, the man who co-created the petition.
