Tamar Jacoby is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute known primarily for her writing on immigration-related issues. Her writing with regard to race relations and immigration has been published in numerous publications, including “Commentary”, “Dissent”, “The Nation”, “The New Republic”, “The Washington Post”, the “Los Angeles Times”, and “The New York Times Book Review”.
More recently, Jacoby’s career has been marked by an outspoken advocacy for policies that would liberalize America’s immigration laws-which she believes is an essential policy shift in order to maintain the economic growth of the United States while preventing a brain drain to other nations-specifically, the passage of a broad guest-worker program, which some critics have described as an amnesty proposal. In 2004 she was confirmed by the United States Senate to a seat on the National Council on the Humanities, the advisory board to the National Endowment for the Humanities.
