If you want something to get mad about, here is one idea from an Iowa Republican candidate running for Congress.
As reported in the Iowa Independent:
Instead of building a border fence to help stem illegal immigration, the U.S. government should implant microchips into immigrants before deportation, much like what is done with pets, Pat Bertroche, an Urbandale physician and one of seven Republicans running in the 3rd District Congressional primary, said Monday.
While speaking at a Tama County Republican forum, Candidate Bertroche made it clear that he wasn’t joking when he suggested treating undocumented immigrants like pets.
Betrouche is quoted as saying:
“I think we should catch ’em, we should document ’em, make sure we know where they are and where they are going,” said Pat Bertroche, an Urbandale physician. “I actually support microchipping them. 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 said.
