Can we deport people we disagree with?

So apparently roughly 32,000 gun rights activists at the time of the article have signed a petition urging the U.S. government to deport Piers Morgan for his unabashed stance for gun restrictions. They believe his powerful influence as a CNN anchor (sorry that's hilarious to me...CNN) combined with his attitudes towards gun control laws is tantamount to an attack on the second amendment (nevermind that by following through on this petition would violate his first amendment rights). [link]
So, should we be able to deport nationals with opposing views? By the by there's a petition with over 470,000 signatures to have Macy's end all of it's business dealings with Donald Trump [link]
How many signatures make petitions such as these valid? Is voicing your opinion against the US constitution on your cable talk show the same as attempting to exhort college records from the president?Who's wrong?

You should say "foreign national". "National" without "foreign" suggests he's a citizen.

There's no legal validity to any such petition, and the protections of the First Amendment extend to foreigners as well. Someone in the US legally may deported under a number of different circumstances, but merely exercising his right to free speech isn't one of them.

We have considerably greater free speech rights in the US than they do in Morgan's home country of the UK. This sort of thing is very embarrassing.

He has the power of CNN behind him? May God have mercy on our souls... What can we do to stop him? It's just pure evil!

Anyway, considering how the blundering American populace actually is stupid enough to believe complete freedom is an actual good thing, I would say yes. I wouldn't be surprised, shocked, or emotionally overturned to use the word flabbergasted, if they allowed it.

Who all for voting Obama off our island? Let me just get that petition going...
