A boy and father from Honduras are taken into custody near the U.S. -Mexico Border on June 12, 2018, near Mission, Tex.

Almost 2,000 migrant children - 1,995 - were separated from 1,940 adults between April 19 and May 31, after being caught illegally crossing the border, a Department of Homeland Security official told reporters during a conference call Friday.

Bannon was seemingly correct, however, in his assertion that the Trump administration is not looking to back away from its "zero-tolerance" immigration policy as senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also weighed in and defended the policy.

And the president signalled the drama could drag on.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wants everyone to know that "nobody likes" Trump's policy that is now separating immigrant parents from their children.

Besides football, Airtel TV offers a number of regional entertainment and news channels for daily consumption. Etisalat announced that it will be broadcasting the World Cup as a standalone package for its customers.

The administration wants to send a message, said a Republican critic of the policy, "that if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you".

During her Sunday appearance on "Face the Nation", Collins suggested the number of children separated from their families at the border could exceed the almost 2,000 reported by the Department of Homeland Security. The children are held in government facilities, released to adult sponsors or placed in temporary foster care.

Amid the crackdown, the detained parents are "in jail settings", the official said, awaiting adjudication and possible prosecution for crossing the border. The process can take several weeks.

Meanwhile, congressional Republicans have struggled to craft a viable immigration plan.

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 NY real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016. "I do remember looking at each other like, 'We're not going to do this, are we?' We spent five minutes thinking it through and concluded that it was a bad idea". One woman tried to give her toys and books to calm her down, but even that shelter worker seemed frustrated, Kraft told The Washington Post, because as much as she wanted to console the little girl, she couldn't touch, hold or pick her up to let her know everything would be all right.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers alike on Sunday called for Congress to pass a law ending the Trump administration's practice of separating and detaining families trying to cross the border into the United States, but the two sides remain sharply divided on what that bill should look like.

While Trump has transparent contempt for his Attorney General because he recused himself from the Russian Federation probe and put the President in jeopardy, the White House backed Sessions' invocation of religion for the immigration measures.

O'Rourke said Sunday he's working with colleagues to introduce a bill this week in the House.

The compromise House Republican bill reportedly would provide $25 billion for a border wall, and detail a process giving young undocumented immigrants permanent residency and a pathway to citizenship.

"The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their frightful and cruel legislative agenda", he tweeted. Since then, the administration has been steadily eroding protections for immigrant children and families.
