It looks like Hispanics are far more conservative on immigration than Democrats thought: a huge majority of them back President Donald Trump’s plans to combat illegal immigration.
The surprising poll, conducted McLaughlin and Associates, showed that 56 percent of Latinos approve of Trump’s plan to deport criminal illegal aliens—while just 31 percent don’t.
Majorities of Republicans, independents, and even Democrats also support Trump’s plan on deportation.
In addition, a plurality of Hispanics approve of Trump’s plan to cut off federal dollars from more than 300 sanctuary cities nationwide. 46 percent of Hispanics back the President’s plan, while 43 percent disagree.
Among all voters, 59 percent approve, and just 29 disapprove.
The poll shows that Hispanics are, overall, less likely to support deportations and oppose sanctuary cities. But it’s clear that they still back commonsense immigration reform with clear majorities and pluralities—and that, despite Democrats citing illegal immigration as a “Hispanic issue,” their vote is not monolithic.
