GOP candidate’s ‘microchip an illegal’ comment draws outrage

“I think we should catch ’em, we should document ’em, make sure we know where they are and where they are going. I actually support microchipping them,” Bertroche said. “I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I microchip an illegal? That’s not a popular thing to say, but it’s a lot cheaper than building a fence they can tunnel under.”

Bertroche has already backpedaled from the comment, telling the Associated Press he can’t understand why people would think he was suggesting illegal immigrants be micro-chipped or that he was comparing him to dogs.

“I don’t support microchipping anybody and it also didn’t occur to me I was comparing dogs to illegal immigrants,” he said by phone.
