(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Surprisingly, new data shows that many Hispanic people favor the mass deportation of illegal migrants.

According to a CBS News/YouGov poll, the majority of Hispanic Americans agree with mass deporting undocumented immigrants living illegally in the U.S.

The poll — which surveyed 1,615 registered voters — revealed that 62 percent of registered voters favored the government introducing a “national program to deport” undocumented illegal migrants, while 38 percent said they would oppose such measures.

The poll also uncovered that even among Hispanic voters, mass deportation remained popular. Fifty-three percent of Hispanic voters said they would favor a mass deportation program, while 47 percent revealed they would oppose it.

White voters were most in favor of mass deportation. Sixty-seven percent supported such a program, while 33 percent opposed it.

Only among Black voters was opposition to such a program popular; 53 percent opposed mass deportation, while 47 percent favored it.

An Axios poll released in April also showed similar sentiment among Americans.

The majority of Americans supported deporting undocumented immigrants — including 45 percent of Latino Americans, who revealed they favored mass deportation of undocumented immigrants.

These results show that there is likely widespread support for former President Donald Trump’s policy plans to launch the largest deportation operation in U.S. history should he return to the White House.

However, according to Associate Professor Thomas Gift of Political Science at University College London, a “smaller portion of Americans” supported what mass deportation entails.

Gift told Newsweek that mass deportation would mean migrants would have to show “papers on-demand” and could result in “racial profiling” and an increase in ICE raids.

Gift also acknowledged the polls reflect how dissatisfied Americans had become with efforts to secure the border.

Amid this discontent, Trump has ramped up his promises to secure the southern border, including bringing on the National Guard to assist in such efforts.
