Poll: Hispanics Support Trump’s Deportations & Defunding Sanctuary Cities
The voters have spoken.
Well, well, well.
According to a new poll from Secure America Now, Hispanic voters support President Trump taking action on deporting illegal immigrants with criminal records and punishing the approximately 300 sanctuary cities for protecting undocumented criminals.
The Washington Examiner reports that the survey revealed that 56 percent of Hispanic voters approve of deporting criminal illegals; a bare 31 percent disapprove.
They also support President Trump’s executive order to end the Obama administration’s “catch and release” policy at the border.
46 percent of Hispanic voters favor cutting off federal grants to sanctuary cities, with 43 percent opposed — a narrower margin. But overall among voters, the difference was a whopping 59 percent who support it to 29 percent opposed.
69 percent of all voters back the President’s illegal immigration plans.
The Examiner had more:
“Trump voters approved 93 percent to 4 percent, but Clinton voters also approved 53 percent to 35 percent. Republicans gave near unanimous support 92 percent to 6 percent; independents 66 percent to 18 percent, and Democrats approved 50 percent to 37 percent. The majority of Hispanic voters also approved the deportation of criminal illegal immigrants 56 percent to 31 percent.”
The Examiner reports that “more weight was given in the poll to Democrats, 36 percent to 33 percent Republican,” so Trump’s numbers overall might even be better.
