Donald Trump & Immigrant Child Featured On Time Magazine's Latest Cover

In the Times piece that accompanies the cover, Karl Vick writes a piece analysing Trump's "Border Separation" policy and how it "reflects a President uncomfortable with ideals". "I took a knee and had very few frames of that moment before it was over, and she picked up her daughter, and they were rushed into the van and all taken away".

Not to be outdone, The New Yorker released the cover image for its July 2 edition, showing frightened immigrant children clinging to the skirts of the Statue of Liberty. They were later transported to a U.S. Customer and Border Protection processing center.

In April, the Trump administration announced a "zero tolerance" policy for illegal crossings, saying that any asylum attempt that is not made at an appropriate port of entry will be deemed illegal and the person will be prosecuted even if they have no criminal history.

Trump has yet to comment on the cover, but given his usual disdain for media criticism, it's likely only a matter of time.

That crying toddler is a two-year-old Honduran, who was captured in a photo with her mother that went viral earlier this week. The president said the border will remain "strong" but that detained immigrants will be kept with their children.

"Time" magazine said the photo has become "the most visible symbol of the immigration debate in America". "All I wanted to do was pick her up, but I couldn't".

Showing the toddler's distress while her mother is searched and detained, the image has become a defining symbol of the impact of the Trump administration's immigration policy, where parents and children entering the USA illegally have been separated at the border.

"I had to stop and take deep breaths", Moore said.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that the Honduran girl and her mother were not separated. "Nine days later-her image having helped force a president's hand-she's on the cover of TIME". Something tells us that he won't be as fond of this latest real cover story.

Anyone who has been following news in the United States recently has probably heard about the turmoil surrounding the separation of undocumented immigrant children from their parents at the southern border of the country.
