A group of Republican Senators are offering what they consider a conservative alternative to the DREAM Act.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

The Succeed Act sets up a path to naturalization for young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, but North Carolina Republican Thom Tillis says it sets up a more rigorous path than other DREAM Act proposals:

(Tillis) "We've got to set a high bar and send a very clear message that people coming to this country should consider doing it legally."

The proposal requires gainful employment, a college or vocational degree or military service and a 15-year wait for naturalization.

Passing the bill is a tough task: Any immigration measure needs at least 60 votes in the Senate.
