A new poll shows that 59 percent of Hispanics oppose President Barack Obama’s increased deportations of illegal immigrants.

The survey by the Pew Hispanic Center released on Wednesday shows that just 27 percent of those polled approved of the president’s deportation policy, which immigrants’ advocates have criticized as unnecessarily harsh.

Mark Lopez, associate director of the Pew Hispanic Center, said that even though Hispanics reject Obama’s deportation policy by a two-to-one ratio, they still support the president generally and show an affinity for his Democratic Party.

The survey showed 49 percent of Hispanics approve of the job Obama is doing, higher than the 46 percent approval rating of the general population.
