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

The Story Behind the Viral Photo of a Crying Child at the Border

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 US border patrol agent searches her mother near the Mexican border.

Time published the cover along with a cover story with the headline, "A Reckoning After Trump's Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We?".

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. When the mother set her daughter down so that she could be searched and the young girl began to cry, Moore said he "was nearly overcome with emotion myself".

Magazine editors wrote that Getty Images photographer John Moore's image of the child was "powerful". "I had to stop and take deep breaths". "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy. He stated: "Time Magazine called to say that I was probably going to be named 'Person of the Year, ' like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot", Trump tweeted.
