I will offer yet another "primary" reason that republicants will not push for more federal immigration law enforcement; there is no "small government" solution to more/better immigration law enforcement.
Try to imagine a republicant demanding that we borrow and spend to get rid of those illegals now working in the US.
What current federal spending would they propose that we cut to "pay for" that effort or do you think that they would call for more taxes to fund that effort instead?

Except try to Spin some yarn as to what the Repubs are doing.

The Washington Examiner's David Drucker reports:
This stopgap measure could take two forms, depending on the scope of an executive order. It could fully fund the government at current levels, including the Department of Homeland Security that oversees immigration, and run through February or March. Or it could provide for a short-term continuing resolution for DHS while fully funding the rest of the government through the remainder of fiscal 2015. The latter option is favored by Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., the likely next chairman of the House Budget Committee......snip~
