Most Hispanics Now Support Mass Deportation of Illegal Migrants in US: Poll; Majority of Hispanics Favor Deporting ‘All’ Illegal Immigrants

Most Hispanics now support mass deportation of illegal migrants in US: poll:
A majority of US Hispanics now support the mass deportation of migrants living in the country illegally — and are evenly split over whether the feds should create large detention centers to assist in carrying the massive operation out, according to a recent poll.
A CBS News/YouGov survey conducted this month shows 53% of Hispanics are in favor of kicking out all of the undocumented immigrants who illegally enter — and 50% support the establishment of federal holding facilities to keep migrants before deportation.
Another 47% of Hispanics oppose the mass deportation plan — and 50% oppose detaining migrants as part of that process.
If such a plan is implemented, 57% of Hispanics back the involvement of local law enforcement agencies in identifying the migrants, while 43% oppose such profiling.
Former President Donald Trump in March announced that his second administration would execute the “largest mass deportation effort” in US history to detain and remove “nearly 20 million” migrants living in the country illegally.
A poll the following month from Axios found that 51% of Americans, 42% of Democrats and 41% of Latinos were in favor of those planned deportations.
Daniel Garza, president of the grassroots Latino advocacy group LIBRE Initiative, said Trump’s proposal was “within the confines of current law” and supported by Hispanics due to the chaos they currently see at the southern border.
“In the absence of good governance, what people then resort to is that the pendulum will swing the other way and opt for the alternative which is a more restrictive approach,” Garza told The Post.
“What we have right now is a very open interpretation of current policy, which is what the Biden administration is doing — and it’s failed miserably.” --->READ MORE HERE

Poll: Majority of Hispanics Favor Deporting ‘All’ Illegal Immigrants:
An outright majority of Hispanic Americans are in favor of a mass deportation plan for illegal immigrants, a new survey found.
Fifty-three percent of Hispanic adults approve of “a new national program to deport all undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. illegally,” according to a CBS/YouGov poll conducted from June 5-7. Only 47% of Hispanic respondents said they opposed such a measure, which is outside the poll’s margin of error.
The political and demographic breakdown of the survey further indicated widespread support for the hypothetical mass deportation plan.
In total, 62% of respondents favored deporting “all” illegal immigrants from the U.S., including a majority of men, women, independents, conservatives, moderates, Republicans, individuals with a four-year college degree, those without a college education, and people over 30 years of age, according to the survey’s findings. Only black Americans, Democrats, liberals, and adults under 30 were mostly opposed to such a plan.
The poll’s findings follow other surveys that show Americans are shifting right on immigration issues. --->READ MORE HERE
