Hispanics disapprove of president Obama’s job, yet they will vote for him

A survey released Wednesday, December 28 by Pew Hispanic Center shows that Latinos disapprove how President Obama has handled the deportation of illegal immigrants. However, the poll also shows that they would vote to re-elect him.

According to Pew, deportations under Obama reached record levels, and rose to an annual average of nearly 400,000 since 2009; double the average of George W. Bush’s first term and 30% higher than his second term.

The record deportations came after president Obama promised an immigration reform and stating in an address in front of La Raza National Council that “communities are terrorize by ICE’s immigration raids, when nursing mothers are torn from their babies,” when he was a candidate.

Why, then, Latinos would vote to re-elect a president who broke his campaign promise and deported more illegal immigrants than his Republican predecessor?

In the first place, anti-illegal immigration laws in Arizona, Alabama, Georgia and other states were created, sponsored and supported by Republican law makers. Second, the left leaning Spanish-language media amplifies news of these legislations while minimizes the news of the number of deportations under the Democrats. Third, there are not Spanish-language media outlets that balance with a conservative point of view.
