Republican lawmakers say they will introduce President Donald Trump's immigration plan as the Senate begins its debate Monday on the contentious issue.

The proposal has no chance of winning approval by the chamber. But it will give the White House and some harder-line GOP senators a chance to stake out their position, and might serve as an opening offer if serious negotiations with Democrats occur.

Like the proposal Trump unveiled last month, the measure would offer a chance for citizenship for up to 1.8 million people who arrived illegally in the U.S. as children. It would provide $25 billion for border security, restrict family-based immigration and end a visa lottery.

Senators introducing the measure include Arkansas' Tom Cotton, John Cornyn of Texas and Iowa's Chuck Grassley.
