President Obama says in a close of the year interview today that fixing the country's "broken immigration system is a top priority."
He vowed in the Meet the Press interview to introduce legislation in the first year. "We've talked about it long enough, we know how we can fix it. We can do it in a comprehensive way that the American people support. That's something we should get done."
Obama says his second priority will be to "stabilize the economy and make sure it's growing." That will include deficit reduction -- and spending on infrastructure, including roads, bridges and schools.
He also called energy a priority, saying the U.S. could become an energy exporter, but that it has to be balanced with environmental concerns.
