The 51-year-old hit out at Trump backer Ben Ferguson after he appeared via live video link from Texas to discuss the shock ruling.
Former Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers did not hold back as he told Ben: “How can you have people with green cards dragged away and handcuffed?” He added: “This country is founded on immigrants.”
Ben explained why the ban was in place, stressing that the seven countries named on the executive order were already part of a list compiled by Trump’s predecessor, former president Barack Obama.
Piers and co-host Susanna Reid said that the nations on the banned list – Libya, Sudan, Yeman, Somalia, Iran, Iraq and Syria – did not have anything to do with the 9/11 terror attacks.
However, Ben hit back: “They trained in the countries on the banned list,” saying that there were countries that “harbour the training of terrorists”.
“This list had been around for some time,” Ben stated. He said that Obama and Hillary Clinton had previously stopped Iraqi refugees from entering the US for six months and that there had not been a similar uproar.

“It’s because they don’t like Trump,” Ben explained, as he reiterated that Obama’s ban was double that of Trump’s one, which has caused global outcry.
However, Piers was not having any of it and asked him: “The Syrian war is the result of the Iraq war. How does that sit with the statue of liberty?
Piers proved to be particularly outspoken on today’s edition of Good Morning Britain as he also slammed celebrities at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards 2017 for their politically-motivated acceptance speeches.

Donald Trump supporter Ben Ferguson defended the ban
Piers said: “It’s an awards ceremony, it’s not a chance for you to be the new Martin Luther King.
“At what point do these ceremonies change from a being celebration of movies?”
He added: “It’s all building up for the Oscars to be not be an event about movies but for the stars to compete about who can scream the loudest about Trump.”
