New Time Cover Blasts Trump on Family Separation

The story behind the ‘little girl’ photo that’s turning the world against Trump’s border policy

According to the "zero tolerance" policy now in place the child was probably separated from her mother there.

The cover shows a two-year-old Honduran girl actually crying before United States president Donald Trump, nearly in a way of pleading the U.S. president to let her stay with her parents and the caption goes as "Welcome to America". The mother and child were put into a van and driven off soon after, presumably to a detention center for processing. The photo is taken from the little girl's eye level, while the adults stand over her, out of frame.

The heading "Welcome to America" accompanies the photo, which TIME says asks the question, "What kind of a country are we?"

Trump blasts Germany while making case for US….
Seehofer has been calling for Germany to turn back migrants previously registered as asylum-seekers in other European countries. Merkel said she will have to discuss "what is important for others; I can't say today what that is".

Some users have noted Trump's past obsession with being on the cover of Time magazine, a preoccupation so intense that, at one point, he had fake Time covers hanging in at least four of his golf resorts. "Ever since I took those pictures, I think about that moment often". He took it during a ride-along with a Customs and Border Patrol agent on June 12. Moore was in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas photographing Border Patrol activities as people were crossing the Rio Grande river from Mexico at night. The photograph of the Honduran girl was just another such experience of a family trying to cross over Rio Grande's northern bank. "But then it was over and they drove away." he said, adding that he wanted to stop her crying.

Due to widespread backlash, Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that will effectively put an end to his policy.

The new Trump administration policy, which went into effect in May, sought to maximise criminal prosecutions of people caught trying to enter the USA illegally. Since Attorney-General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, almost 2,000 children have been taken away from their parents.
