You Can Get A Perfectly Healthy 7 year old for $2500 In Texas

Apr 10, 2019

NY POST: A mom who sold her 7-year-old son and planned to sell her two daughters, ages 2 and 3, to settle a drug debt, was sentenced to six years in prison.

Esmeralda Garza, of Corpus Christi, Texas, was sentenced on Friday after taking a plea deal last Monday, the Corpus Christi Caller Times reported.

Garza, who sold her son to a woman for $2,500, was convicted on three counts of selling or purchasing a child, money laundering, and conspiring to sell or purchase a child. Her sentences – six years for selling her children and two years for her other charges – will run concurrently.

In June of last year, officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety found Garza’s son in a Corpus Christi home after conducting a drug search warrant.

“Further investigation revealed two more female children, ages 2 and 3, who were in the process of being sold,” according to a release following Garza’s arrest last June.

Garza told police that she and her boyfriend decided to sell the children to pay off a drug debt.

If you can get $2500 for a 7-year-old, you have to think the 2 and 3-year-old kids would go for under 1000.

Human Trafficking is an absolute sin but if you take this out of context and look at it from a goods and services trade, the 7-year-old would be significantly better at things. General labor around the house, simple reasoning and he wouldn’t require the same commitment as a 2 or 3-year-old.  This isn’t something that drug dealers and addicts generally consider when they sell their kids.  the 2-year-old would be way more work than the 7-year-old plus the 3-year-old would be sicker, more often.  The older kids who had a three-year head start have already gone through that ‘Daycare Disease Cycle.’

Anyway, seems like a terrible deal for the kids.
