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

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
