DALLAS (AP) - President Barack Obama says Congress has the ability to act immediately to address the wave of unaccompanied minors coming over the border from Mexico into the U.S.

Obama spoke in Dallas after meeting Wednesday with Gov. Rick Perry and other officials about the unaccompanied minors entering the country by the thousands.

Obama says Perry raised four areas of concern and made suggestions. Obama says he doesn't have a philosophical objection to anything Perry suggested. He says if Congress passes his emergency funding request, the government will have to resources to take some of the steps Perry recommended.

Obama says the problem is fixable if lawmakers are interested in solving it. He says if the preference is for politics, it won't be solved.
