New 'Time' magazine cover shows Trump looking down at crying migrant child

The little girl with her mother

TIME magazine puts the issue of family separation squarely at President Donald Trump's feet in a cover released Thursday. Church groups and human rights advocates have sharply criticised the policy, calling it inhumane.

The image was taken from a Getty photo of a two-year-old migrant girl who cried while her mother was being detained by US border patrol officials near McAllen, Texas.

The debate over the Trump administration's immigration policy is still simmering, and the blowback continues to hit Trump - this time in the form of yet another Time magazine cover.

Julianne Moore, Kathy Griffin, Katie Holmes, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Laura Dern are just a few of the celebrities who have shared the powerful image, which features a photo of a 2-year-old Honduran girl crying as her mother was being detained in McAllen, Tex.

"Welcome to America", the headline on the cover says. And the separation from their parents is traumatic enough to be likened to torture. It was one of the most heartbreaking he's seen in years of photographing the border, he said.

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

"This one was tough for me", Moore said.

Bowing down to pressure, Trump Wednesday reversed the policy and ended the process of separating children from families apprehended at the border. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigrants.

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

"I don't have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don't know what could happen", he told the Daily Mail. That original picture was captured by Getty photographer John Moore.

Actress Olivia Wilde reminded her followers that with the thousands of kids still detained apart from their parents, "This is far from over". In Moore´s words: "All I wanted to do was pick her up".
