Republican Candidate says, "Why can’t I micro-chip an illegal?"

3 posts / 0 new

In Iowa, at a Tama County Republican forum Monday, six candidates for the GOP nomination mixed it up. On Immigration, one candidate, Pat Bertroche, an Urbandale physician, said, “I think we should catch ’em, ... and micro-chip them. I can micro-chip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I micro-chip an illegal? “That’s not a popular thing to say, but it’s a lot cheaper than building a fence they can tunnel under."

It's better than my idea of cutting off a finger everytime you're caught. Might as well adopt some Sharia Laws

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
