    Trammell S. Crow makes third $100,000 donation to Farmers Branch to fight illegal immigration

    Trammell S. Crow, the 61-year-old Dallas heir to a real estate empire, has delivered another $100,000 to the Farmers Branch Legal Defense Fund in support of the suburb’s efforts to bar illegal immigrants from rental housing. That brings his donations to $300,000 since September.

    The latest check increases the combat fund to $454,029.

    Immigration-related legal expenses by the city are nearly $6 million since it introduced its first version of the ordinance six years ago.

    The city council in FB, a suburb of 29,000, has defended the ordinance, despite federal rulings that the ordinance is unconstitutional. All sides are now waiting for a ruling from the rehearing before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, after a landmark immigration decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in June.

    Through an email with an assistant, Crow has said he supports the city’s efforts to discourage illegal immigration because he believed it was harmful to “vulnerable minorities,” including legal immigrants. Among his concerns, he said, was wage depression, a controversial point debated for some years by economists, including those at the Dallas Federal Reserve.

    This week, Crow’s staff referenced a 1994 report, cited on the website of Numbers USA, a group advocating immigration restrictions. (Numbers USA has been a past guest at Dallas Earth Day, an event Crow organizes.) The 1994 report by a population and consumption task force created by the President’s Council on Sustainable Development noted legal and illegal immigration was a “sensitive issue, but reducing immigration is a necessary part of population stabilization and the drive toward sustainability.”

    Here’s a link to the actual report.


    And here’s a report on studies that have found no or only weak effects of immigration on low-skilled workers. Among the work cited is that of Dallas Federal Reserve economist Pia Orrenius.

    The first report is by people who think that low-skilled immigration is a good idea, because it makes goods and services cheaper in the sectors which receive it.

    Too bad if Americans would like to get jobs as janitors, when immigrants will work for less.
