Eight senators are collaborating in Washington, spearheading an immigration overhaul, the blueprint of which is slated to unveil Monday, reported multiple news sources.

President Obama is scheduled to outline a separate plan on immigration reform on Tuesday in Nevada, reported CBS.

The bipartisan group of eight senators includes Democrats Charles Schumer of New York, Robert Menendez of New Jersey; and Republicans John McCain of Arizona, Marco Rubio of Florida and Jeff Flake of Arizona, according to CBS.

The legislation, which was sent to The New York Times on Monday, differs from the immigration blueprint proposed in 2011, the senators' proposal enforces tougher border control and a more difficult path to citizenship, reported The New York Times.
