New 'Time' cover puts Trump's immigration policy on blast

New 'Time' cover puts Trump's immigration policy on blast

A two-year-old Honduran asylum seeker cries as her mother is searched and detained near the U.S. -Mexico border on June 12, 2018 in McAllen, Texas.

Several Republican legislators joined with Democrats in decrying the policy and imploring Trump to step in.

The images of children being separated from their parents and the uproar that has followed has been startling. When the entire world is shocked by the heart-wrenching photos of children being separated from parents at the US-Mexico border, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore's work has made it to the magazine's July cover as a part of an interesting graphic. "The little girl immediately started crying", the photographer told NPR. It was one of the most heartbreaking he's seen in years of photographing the border, he said. "This one was tough for me". "Ever since I took those pictures, I think about that moment often".

"Most of us here had heard the news that the administration had planned to separate families, and these people really had no idea about this news, and it was hard to take these pictures knowing what was coming next", Moore said. "All I wanted to do was pick her up".

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.

The image has been seen and shared by millions, as Trump's controversial policy of taking asylum-seeking children from their families and holding them in US foster care-while their mothers and fathers are jailed and criminally prosecuted-draws fierce criticism. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigrants. States far from the border, including MI and NY, have already received detained children who were flown in.
