A national poll found that 89 percent of Latino voters support for President Obama’s use of executive authority on immigration. Eighty percent say they are opposed to congressional Republicans’ plans to block executive action by defunding programs that would support it. The poll was conducted November 20-22, immediately following President Obama’s announcement, and was conducted by Latino Decisions and commissioned by Presente.org in partnership with NALACC and Mi Familia Vota.

Latino voters across party affiliation showed overwhelming support for the executive action with 95 percent of Latino Democrats, 81 percent of Latino Independents, and 76 percent of Latino Republicans saying they support the decision by Obama to provide relief from deportation to undocumented parents of U.S. citizen and legal resident children.
