WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he still intends to act on his own to change immigration policies but stopped short of reiterating his past vows to act by end of summer.

Obama also says that the flow of unaccompanied minors attempting to cross the border has fallen, with the number of apprehensions in August dropping below July's levels.

He says if Congress does not act on a broader immigration overhaul, he will do what he can to improve the system.

But he adds, quote, "Some of these things affect timelines and we're just going to be working through as systematically as possible in order to get this done."

Obama has ordered a review of executive actions he could take on immigration and had said he intended to act by summer's end.
