By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says his administration won't "kick the can down the road" when it comes to fixing the nation's broken immigration policies.

In his first major speech on the issue as president, Obama says that while the frustrations over immigration aren't new, Arizona's tough new anti-immigrant law and the protests surrounding it have created new tensions. Still, Obama says reform has been held hostage by political posturing and special-interest wrangling.

Obama had promised to make immigration reform a top priority in his first year in office. Advocates had hoped that his efforts would be completed by now.
