Time Magazine Lays Child Migrant Crisis At President Trump’s Feet

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 USA foster care-while their mothers and fathers are jailed and criminally prosecuted-draws fierce criticism.

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. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van. One photographer documented the human face of this policy with a viral photo of a crying toddler at the border.

Moore told "Time" that capturing the moment of the little girl crying as her mother was searched and detained was "tough". "For the first 240 years of USA history, at least, our most revered chief executives reliably articulated a set of high-minded, humanist values that bound together a diverse nation by naming what we aspired to: democracy, humanity, equality", TIME's Karl Vick wrote in the cover story that goes along with the photo.




Donald Trump may have announced the end to his breathtakingly cruel child separation policy yesterday. It's been estimated that almost 2,000 children have been apprehended at the U.S. -Mexico border since April, as part of a practice a human rights official with the United Nations has called "unconscionable". "Nine days later-her image having helped force a president's hand-she's on the cover of TIME".

The young girl on the cover comes from a photo taken by Getty photographer John Moore at the southern U.S. border. "But then it was over and they drove away." he said, adding that he wanted to stop her crying. He took it during a ride-along with a Customs and Border Patrol agent on June 12. After more than 2,000 families were ripped apart, Trump signed an executive order ending the policy on Wednesday. "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy.
