(CBS NEWS) An anti-Obama group hopes to use the president’s deportation record to pull away his Hispanic support, beginning in a campaign in Nevada next week.
The “Vote Your Values” effort will be launched on Wednesday, May 30. It will not back a specific candidate, but goes directly against Obama for his record on immigration.
“Latinos have latched onto President Obama’s failed promises of fixing immigration and jumpstarting job creation,” Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said in a statement Thursday. “Instead of advocating for Hispanics, his administration has deported more immigrants than any other president in the modern era, through a policy of massive and systematic deportations that is much more punitive than the Arizona law.”
