A top White House adviser Sunday distanced the Trump administration from responsibility for separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, even though the administration put in place and could easily end a policy that has led to a spike in cases of split and distraught families.Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the New York real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016 .Schiff called the practice "deeply unethical" and said Republicans' refusal to criticize Trump represented a "sad degeneration" of the GOP, which he said had become "the party of lies".The House proposals face broad opposition from Democrats, and even if a bill does pass, the closely divided Senate seems unlikely to go along.McCaul, R-Texas, said both bills satisfy Trump's main objectives.Steve Bannon argued that effort risked alienating Trump's political base and contributing to election losses in November, when Republicans hope to preserve their congressional majorities.Conway and Schiff appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press," Collins was on CBS' "Face the Nation," Lujan and Bannon spoke on ABC's "This Week," O'Rourke was interviewed on CNN's "State of the Union" and McCaul was on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures".
