One more thing. This wouldn't be an issue if republicans weren't scared to death that all illegals will automatically join the democratic party. Republicans don't give a damn about doing the right thing. They care about party power and little more.

In all fairness the Dems only care about their party power as well. The reason they want a path to citizenship is that they assume it will give them that many more votes. Nothing more and nothing less.

Well, this would be an entirely different discussion if the immigrants slipping over the border without caring to apply for and follow the legal pathways were bible-thumping human rights believers who want the protections of the American Constitution for their protection against overlord governance.
The Democrats would be howling to police the border, and arrest the illegals and ship them home.
This time it does involve doing some of the right thing in my opinion. Occassionally that happens to one side or the other. But their motivation is not pure. Their motivation is power.
