Time magazine cover puts Trump face to face with crying immigrant girl

The Story Behind the Viral Photo of a Crying Child at the Border

Critics of President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that led to the separation of families at the border praised the cover of Time magazine that juxtaposed the image of a crying migrant girl with one of the president.

President Trump has since signed an executive order that reserves his administrations' policy of separating children from their detained parents at the border.

Keeping families together does not change the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

The new cover features an iconic photo captured by Getty Images Pulitzer Prize-winning photograhper John Moore. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van.

The heading "Welcome to America" accompanies the photo, which TIME says asks the question, "What kind of a country are we?" But while he claims no more children will be ripped from their parents at the US border moving forward, there will be no recourse for the thousands of families already torn apart.

"I don't have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don't know what could happen", he told the Daily Mail.

Being in the cover of TIME Magazine, has been a long-running obsession of Trump throughout the years and it goes so deep that in at least five of his golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland, he hung a Time magazine cover featuring a picture of a cross-armed Trump with the words: "Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!".

The toddler was actually detained with her mother Sandra Sanchez in the Texas border town of McAllen, according to her father Denis Valera.

Video footage of separated children sitting in cages, an audiotape of wailing children and Moore's photo had sparked worldwide anger over Trump's immigration policies. Moore further said that he really wanted to "pick the girl up" at that moment but he couldn't. "They often leave with their children with their shirts on their backs".

When Sandra left on her journey with Yanela, she left Hernandez behind with three other children - Wesly (14), Cindy (11), and Brianna (6). The Associated Press quoted the Border Patrol as saying that close to 200 people inside the facility were minors, unaccompanied by a parent.
