'Why can’t I micro-chip an illegal?'

Longshot Iowa GOP congressional candidate Pat Bertroche wins the line-of-the-day contest* for this statement on immigration, made during a candidate forum:

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 micro-chipping them. I can micro-chip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I micro-chip an illegal?

First of all: He micro-chipped his dog? Second, here -- and throughout the article, which you really should check out -- is why Republicans are not at all eager for immigration to surface as a big-ticket issue again.
