Obama embraces promise to move on immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says undocumented workers should not be included in the health care overhaul plan he's trying to push through Congress.

He tells Univision's "Al Punto" show that if undocumented immigrants want to buy insurance, that's a matter to be settled with insurance companies. But he does not think they should be able to participate in insurance exchanges set up under the new health care plan.

He says children of legal residents should have access to health care. The president also says that overhauling immigration policy will be hard, "but I think we can get it done." He's not giving a timetable, though.
