Demand Republican Congressional Candidate Apologize for Suggesting We Microchip "Illegals"

This petition had 1,789 supporters


At a Tama County Republican County forum, primary candidate for Congress Pat Bertroche suggested that we microchip "illegals."

Bertroche said, referring to undocumented immigrants who are detained and deported, "I actually support microchipping them. I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can't I microchip an illegal?"

Human beings are not pets. They are not property. And the dehumanizing rhetoric that leads people to forget this needs to stop.

Demand that Bertroche apologize for his offensive rhetoric, and that the Tama County Republican Party, which hosted him, denounce his degrading comments.
