WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says America must "seize the moment" to seek an overhaul of the immigration system and he expects that work to start soon after his inauguration for a second term.
In his first news conference after winning re-election, Obama says conversations are already taking place among his staff and members of Congress.
The president says comprehensive immigration reform should include a path to legal status for those who came to the U.S. illegally seeking work. He says those immigrants should pay back taxes, learn English and potentially pay fines.
Obama is urging lawmakers to codify his decision earlier this year to stop deporting young illegal immigrants brought here by their parents.
He says the country needs to build on momentum from the last week's election.
