President Obama has worked hard to attract Hispanic support -- particularly through his support of a new immigration bill -- but there is a major dispute on one issue.

Deportations.

Janet Murguia -- president of the National Council of La Raza, the nation's largest Latino advocacy organization -- says she will call Tuesday night for Obama to end his record-setting deportation policies.

"For the president, I think his legacy is at stake here," MurguĂ­a told Politico in an interview. "We consider him the deportation president, or the deporter-in-chief."

Also from Politico:

"By April, Obama will have overseen more than 2 million deportations, activists say, far more than any previous president.

"Obama has insisted -- including when he was interrupted by a protester -- that Congress has tied his hands and he cannot reduce the number of people being deported unilaterally."
