The controversial Trump administration immigration policy that separates children from their parents when they cross the border took center stage in this week's Sunday show conversations.

Why it matters: The policy has quickly garnered international attention with the UN calling it a "serious violation" of the immigrants' rights. Its defenders have said that the Trump administration is simply enforcing the law while its critics have compared it to the inhumane practices of authoritarian regimes.
