Senate Republicans counter Dream Act with SUCCEED Act for undocumented children

Recently, Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and James Lankford (R-OK) introduced the SUCCEED Act (Solution for Undocumented Children through Careers, Employment, Education and Defending our nation) [FAQ], a merit-based solution to address the legal uncertainty facing undocumented children.

Only after 15 years of legal status, including at least five years as a green card holder, could an applicant apply for citizenship. — Joe
