Emanuel Celler (May 6, 1888 – January 15, 1981) was a Democrat representative from New York City who served for half a century in the United States House of Representatives. While mostly a liberal, he opposed and voted against the Equal Rights Amendment, leading to his ouster in the 1972 primaries. He is best known for introducing the Hart-Celler Act, an immigration bill that passed in the mid-1960s.
