Majority of Hispanics Support Mass Deportation


A recent poll has revealed a surprising trend: a significant majority of Hispanic Americans favor a national program for mass deportation of illegal immigrants. This development underscores a shift in attitudes within a demographic traditionally perceived as opposing stringent immigration measures.

The poll, conducted by CBS News/YouGov, indicates that 53% of Hispanic respondents support a national deportation program for illegal aliens, with 47% opposing it. This nuanced perspective challenges the monolithic view of Hispanic voters as uniformly against strict immigration policies.

The poll also found that 62% of all registered voters back the deportation program, highlighting broad support across political lines, including majorities of Republicans, independents, and a notable minority of Democrats​​.

This shift comes at a time when immigration remains a contentious issue in American politics. The poll results show that even within the Democratic Party, there is considerable support for mass deportation, with 38% of Democrats in favor of such measures. This suggests growing frustration with the current administration's handling of immigration, particularly among those who feel the system is overwhelmed​​.

Former President Donald Trump, a staunch advocate for mass deportation, has promised to launch the largest domestic deportation operation in U.S. history if re-elected. Speaking in Phoenix, Trump emphasized his commitment to deportation, contrasting it with what he described as President Biden's lenient approach to immigration​.

Additionally, the poll reveals strong support for empowering local law enforcement to identify and report illegal immigrants. About 62% of respondents, including 57% of Hispanics and 45% of Democrats, back these efforts, reflecting a widespread desire for more stringent immigration enforcement at the local level​​.

While the idea of establishing large detention centers to hold individuals pending their deportation status is more divisive, the poll shows a nearly even split among respondents, with 48% in favor and 52% opposed. Hispanics are similarly divided on this issue, indicating varied opinions within the community​​.

The broader implications of these findings suggest a significant shift in public opinion on immigration, with many Americans, including a substantial portion of the Hispanic community, supporting more rigorous enforcement measures. This trend poses a challenge for the Biden administration, which has struggled to address the complex and polarizing issue of immigration reform​.
