It was used to promote a fundraiser that has collected more than $18 million to help reunite separated families. A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection also confirmed to the Daily Beast that the mother and daughter were not separated.

Vick ventures into the tumultuous past two weeks of Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on migrants trying to enter the border illegally and the separation of families that ensued. A Facebook fundraiser that used the photograph to solicit funds to help reunite families has already raised almost $20 million, becoming the single largest crowdfunding campaign in the history of the social media platform.More news: Supreme Court closes online sales tax loophole
