The new Time magazine cover slams Donald Trump over family separation policy

22 June 2018

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. Church groups and human rights advocates have sharply criticised the policy, calling it inhumane.

Time magazine just released the cover photo for their upcoming issue, and it directly tackles a salient and troubling phenomenon.

The girl is from a photograph taken at the U.S. border by Getty photographer John Moore this week.

The girl, 2, on the front cover was not actually separated from her parents but her story is still heartbreaking.

"Welcome to America", the cover reads. Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc. said in an email to The Washington Post: "I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover." .

Several Republican legislators joined with Democrats in decrying the policy and imploring Trump to step in. Children are being essentially kidnapped.

"This is the case for my daughter, but it is not the case for 2,000 children that were separated from their parents", Valera said.

US President Donald Trump is back on the cover of TIME Magazine, this time with an immigrant toddler.

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

Moore, who has been photographing the American migrant crisis for more than a decade, was tagging along with U.S. border patrol agents who were waiting for a group of Honduran migrants to cross the border. "I'm nearly positive these families last week had no idea they'd be separated from their children".

According to Time, Moore had said,"This one was tough for me".

"As soon as it was over, they were put into a van", he told the magazine. "But on the other, I don't take great exception to them doing an illustration", he said. I asked her, why?

The heart-wrenching image, captured by award-winning Getty Images photographer John Moore, was spread across the front pages of global newspapers.

The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy has resulted in many people being taken into custody immediately after crossing the border.

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.
