Illegal Immigrant Makes Deal to Sell Teenage Daughter for Cash, Beer, Soda, Wine & Meat. Is this how you better your life in America?

”(CNN) -- A California man sold his 14-year-old daughter to an 18-year-old man for cash, beer and meat -- then called police when the prospective bridegroom didn't live up to his end of the deal, authorities said Tuesday.”
“Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, of Greenfield, California, was arrested Monday and booked into the Monterey County Jail, Greenfield police said in a statement. He faces felony charges of receiving money for causing a person to cohabitate, police said.”

  • I am just shocked that he t hought it was appropriate to sell his daughter for those items. It's inappropriate at all that he'd even think of selling his daughter. I think this man is scum for his actions not because of his race or legal status.

  • You can't possibly be trying to insinuate that ALL illegal immigrants act like this.

  • Oh but she can....^^

    You know things like this were not uncommon at all when the English settled here. Some brides were given and the father received a nice steer or some goats....
