Donald Trump And Immigrant Girl Meet Face To Face On Time Cover

Share

According to TIME, John Moore, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for Getty Images, has been photographing immigrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border for years.

Time magazine has always known to come up with unique covers of raging issues and this time it's no different. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van. "I'm nearly positive these families last week had no idea they'd be separated from their children".

No image has galvanized revulsion toward Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy like the one showing a two-year-old Honduran girl crying-the only light coming from the vehicles around her-as a USA border patrol agent searches her mother near the Mexican border. Illustrators placed an image of President Donald Trump right beside her. President Trump appears to look down as the child wails.

Moore said that he saw the mother was breastfeeding her daughter "to keep her calm" and, later, one of the agents asked the mother to put her daughter down.

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. "As I finished taking these photographs, I had to stop and take a few breaths".

"I've worked in this business for many years and oftentimes we cover stories that we think are really important but in the end they may not resonate with the public", said Moore.

The image has triggered a debate among critics across the political spectrum who have gone onto attack President Trump's now-reversed policy of separating children from parents who are then being illegally detained for entering the US.

"I could see the fear on their faces and in their eyes".

He said that he's seen similar interactions between immigrants and border agents before, but the difference with this instance was that it happened with the backdrop of the recent zero-tolerance policy being enforced by the Trump administration.

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