TIME Unveils Cover Of July Issue, Focuses On Immigration In US

Little girl

In the stark photo illustration, the towering figure of Trump looms over a sobbing child, who is the subject of a now-iconic photograph taken recently by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore.

The cover shows a two-year-old Honduran girl actually crying before U.S. president Donald Trump, nearly in a way of pleading the USA president to let her stay with her parents and the caption goes as "Welcome to America".

The issue of the magazine will hit newsstands July 2, by then over a week after Trump signed an executive order to end the separations of children and their parents who have been detained for illegally crossing the us border.

Photographer John Moore spoke with NPR about the June 12 photo, shedding some light on the moving photo that's gone viral across the internet.

The photo shows the 2-year-old Honduran girl in tears as Border Patrol agents search and detain her mother in McAllen, Texas. "All I wanted to do was pick her up, but I couldn't". "I had to stop and take deep breaths", he continued. Now - they're detained by border patrol.and could be separated.

"It was an emotional moment for me", said Moore, who is a father of three himself.

The cover comes a day after the president signed an executive order to stop his administration's policy of separating immigrant children from their families at the US border.

Mr Moore said he told the boy: "It will be OK" and then felt guilty, because he did not know what the child's fate would be. As the spotlight fell on their faces, their faces exuded a mix of fear and relief. The policy stipulates the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) refer all cases of illegal entry to be criminally prosecuted and, as a result, the parents are detained and because the children are not charged with a crime, they are not detained with the parents. "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy.
