Bertroche has already backpedaled from the comment, telling the Associated Press he can't understand why people would think he was suggesting illegal immigrants be micro-chipped or that he was comparing him to dogs.
"I don't support microchipping anybody and it also didn't occur to me I was comparing dogs to illegal immigrants," he said by phone.
