Trump had initially responded to criticisms by claiming that it was not in his power to reverse the family separation policy, which his own administration had implemented.
The cover features a stone-faced Trump staring down at the now-famous 2-year-old Honduran girl from the viral photo of her crying as her mother is searched by a border patrol agent. The mother and child were put into a van and driven off soon after, presumably to a detention center for processing. The girl's mother was being frisked and body-searched (after which she was reportedly detained) when Moore took this picture.
The accompanying story to the cover by Karl Vick, titled "A Reckoning After Trump's Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We?" describes the way that Trump is changing the perception of what America is, not just for Americans, but also for the world. "But I couldn't." The editors of Time recognized the power behind the image and chose to use it in their latest cover. "But then it was over and they drove away." he said, adding that he wanted to stop her crying. In an interview with NPR, Moore said he was photographing U.S. Border Patrol near the border in McAllen, Texas when they found a group of undocumented immigrants. That original picture was captured by Getty photographer John Moore.

Trump's comments sent lawmakers into a last-minute tizzy as they prepare for potential votes in the coming week. Remember, when I took this job three years ago, I said we'll bring stuff to the floor that may or may not pass.
Amid all kinds of torture, unaccompanied immigrant children held at a detention centre in the U.S. state of Texas were also forcibly given a variety of psychotropic drugs, claimed a lawsuit, IANS reported.The lawsuit that was made public on Wednesday alleged that immigrant children at Shiloh Treatment Centre in Houston, a government-run facility that houses unaccompanied migrant kids, were held down and told they would not be able to see their parents unless they took the psychiatric drugs. More adults were being put behind bars as a result, which had led to their children being separated from them.
Vick ventures into the tumultuous past two weeks of Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on migrants trying to enter the border illegally and the separation of families that ensued.
