2. Looking at the issue pragmatically, I do not see Republicans seriously supporting this issue

Why would they assist in moving thousands onto the road to citizenship, knowing that once each acquired the right to vote, they would in great numbers vote Democratic?

The Republican party as a collective group of politicians simply looks at what is in it's best interests, as well as those who donate to their campaign. There is no room to look after the well-being of those who could potentially threaten their ability to win. Winning is everything; serving the interests of the populace in the overall scheme of things ... not too important.
