''My daughter lives here in Germany. One brother came for her hand in marriage. The first asked a pastor to come and see me to ask for my daughter's hand in marriage. I asked them to go and think about it and be certain about the decision to marry my daughter.
''The man was an undocumented immigrant. When he returned to ask to marry my daughter, I told them I would take just one traditional slipper,'' he recalled.
