Fox News guest: ‘Illegals’ can go home if they don’t like the slur - . . . The Daily Caller’s Michelle Fields told Fox News host Sean Hannity that liberals were trying to “demonize” conservatives in the Colorlines campaign to “Drop the I-Word.”
“I’m not stopping it,” Hannity insisted. “Illegal immigrant! Illegal!”
“People that enter into the country illegally are illegal,” Fields remarked. “OK, that’s not a racial slur. That’s not racist. This is simply just liberals trying so hard to change the subject, to distract voters from Obama’s failed policies.”
“I think it’s a racial slur, to be sure,” left-leaning Fox News contributor Bob Beckel replied. “It’s hate speech, which you right-wingers are pretty good at.”
“So, you think I’m a racist?” Hannity wondered.
“I just think that in and of itself it is a racist word,” Beckel replied.
“If illegals are so upset about the term ‘illegal,’ why don’t they return to their country, apply for a visa and then come back legally,” Fields advised. “And then we won’t call them illegals.” . . . .

In October DEA agents got a tip that such a vehicle would be carrying the drug across the border. Agents intercepted it, then took over the delivery duties to a farm in Montgomery County. "On Oct. 28, 2011, agents observed Alvarez-Soria arrive at the ranch, remove some red colored gas cans from the vehicle he was driving and siphon the liquid methamphetamine from the front fuel tank of the Ford F-250 and into the red gas cans," the U.S. Attorney's Office says. "Subsequently, officers stopped him and discovered the liquid methamphetamine and suspected acetone, mixing trays, buckets and a pump which are used to separate the methamphetamine from the liquid."
Total haul: About 14 gallons of the stuff. He also pleaded guilty to delivering four kilos of 82-percent pure meth to a DPS undercover agent in August. He faces ten years to life, with sentencing set for August 30.
