The photo of the little girl crying as a U.S. Border Patrol agent patted down her mother became a symbol of the families pulled apart by the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy at the border, even landing on the cover of Time Magazine.

"Welcome to America", reads the headline on the latest cover of Time magazine, released this morning via Twitter.

The issue carries the simple coverline, "Welcome to America".

President Trump's Executive Order issued on Wednesday is meant to act as a temporary solution to the issue of child separation, allowing families to remain together while detained and awaiting adjudication.

"As soon as it was over, they were put into a van", he told the magazine.

Ian Wright was shell-shocked... "It was the advantage", Messi said. "I had a feeling that he could go that way". Messi has missed four of the last seven penalties that he has taken for Barcelona & Argentina combined (57%).

Moore said he captured the photograph while on an official ride-along with U.S. Border Patrol and that he was "overcome with sadness" when he took it.

"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. "I fear they were split up". "All I wanted to do was pick her up". "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy.

Video footage of separated children sitting in cages, an audiotape of wailing children and Moore's photo had sparked worldwide anger over Trump's immigration policies. The magazine refuted his story, saying that's not how it chooses people. The striking use of these two images together exemplifies the debate around immigration, family separation, and the "zero tolerance" policy, which the Trump administration instituted in early May.

"This is the case for my daughter, but it is not the case for 2,000 children that were separated from their parents", Valera said.
