US President Donald Trump is back on the cover of TIME Magazine, this time with an immigrant toddler.

Trump, of course, is obsessed with Time magazine - and not just because he paid one of his employees to create a fake Time cover, with his likeness, that he hung in at least five of his golf courses.

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

Bowing to pressure from anxious allies, Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday ending the process of separating children from families after they are detained crossing the U.S. border illegally.

"Obviously we all know how important Messi is not just for us but for the 45 million people back in Argentina ", he said. The Barcelona star turns 31-years-old on Sunday, which means this World Cup could be his last chance.

The image of the two-year-old was captured by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore at the US border as the girl watched her mother being detained by border officials.

In April, the Trump administration announced its hard-line policy for illegal crossings, saying that any asylum attempt that is not made at an appropriate port of entry would be deemed illegal and the person would be prosecuted even if they had no criminal history. However, this time the Getty Images photographer was clear that things are different.

An image of Donald Trump staring down an immigrant girl on the front of Time magazine is causing waves. Sanchez had told her husband that she hoped to go the U.S.to seek a better life for her children, away from the dangers of their home country.

"As soon as it was over, they were put into a van", he told the magazine. Moore, who as a photojournalist has been covering the U.S. -Mexico border for a decade, said he did not see the pair separated but that policy at the time would indicate their separation.

Kim Jong-un's latest trip to China has also sparked speculations that sanctions imposed by Beijing may be discussed. He noted that unlike on previous visits, China's state broadcaster CCTV announced Kim's visit before his departure.

"It's hard as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger", he added. "Immediately I recognized her". "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy.

The House will vote Thursday on two immigration proposals. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigrants.

The images of children being separated from their parents and the uproar that has followed has been startling.
