New 'Time' magazine cover shows Trump looking down at crying migrant child

The Trump administration's policy that effectively separated families crossing the USA border has held up a big, glaring mirror to America's moral character. Seeking asylum, the Honduran girl was seen crying and looking up at her mother as she was searched and questioned before the two were separated at the detention center. When the mother set her daughter down so that she could be searched and the young girl began to cry, Moore said he "was nearly overcome with emotion myself". The text reads simply, "Welcome to America".

While the separation policy has officially been rolled back, how and when the government plans to reunite those children with their parents is unclear.

The photographer who snapped the now-iconic shot of the little Honduran girl told Time about the scene.

The migrants were met by emergency workers, health officials, Red Cross volunteers and psychologists at the city's marina. The warmer weather has caused a spike in migration from North Africa to Europe.

"As a father myself, it was very hard for me to see these families detained, knowing that they would soon be split up", Moore told Getty's blog Foto. It was one of the most heartbreaking he's seen in years of photographing the border, he said. "All I wanted to do was pick her up".

This week, President Trump signed an executive order reversing the policy after days of double talk from administration officials and the President himself.

The cover is for the July 2 edition of the magazine, which will appear on newsstands the week of Independence Day.

The policy that resulted in kids and their parents being separated at the border was enacted by Trump, whose administration then went back and forth between blaming it on Democrats and denying it existed.

In the illustration employed by TIME, the child looks with horror at Donald Trump, rather than the border patrol officer-effectively revealing the real power behind the family separation tactic.
