Top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway claimed on Sunday she and other Donald Trump aides dislike the practice of separating children from their parents at the border — but she denied the fact that the controversial situation results from a Trump administration policy shift. “As a mother, as a Catholic, as someone with a conscience… I will tell you that nobody likes this policy,” Conway told Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”Asked repeatedly why Trump doesn’t reverse the policy, Conway blamed Democrats for not authorizing funding to build more detention centers and said that children of undocumented immigrants were detained under former President Barack Obama.

By Ruben Navarrette Jr. | April 24, 2018 at 4:00 pm SAN DIEGO — I’ve written about politics for 30 years, and I’ve been happily married for half as long. And, from making my way through the trenches of both adventures, here is what I’ve learned: My wife and I will at times disagree about politics. And, when this happens, I’m always wrong. Well, that explains the “happily married” part. Even so, I’m beginning to think that for many people, marriage and politics don’t mix.
