Students Demand Savage's Firing

TALK RADIO NETWORK syndicated talker MICHAEL SAVAGE is no stranger to controversy, and he's in one again as a group of Latino SAN JOSE UNIVERSITY students who spent a week fasting to support a bill to give illegal immigrants student loans is demanding that SAVAGE be fired for suggesting the students be left to starve to death.
Discussing the "Dream Act" protest on his JULY 5 show, SAVAGE said, "I would say, let them fast until they starve to death, then that solves the problem. Then we won't have a problem about giving them green cards because they're illegal aliens."
The students, backed by 51 liberal organizations from across the BAY AREA, staged a news conference THURSDAY at SAN JOSE CITY HALL to demand the host's firing.
