Here’s why Donald Trump is on the cover of TIME Magazine again

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.

Donald Trump: US envoy confirms UN Human Rights Council withdrawal
Rights groups accused the United States of withdrawing from its global obligations to protect human rights. The council was formed in 2006, with the goal of helping to ensure human rights were upheld worldwide.

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.

Under the Obama administration, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation. Nearly 52,000 people were caught trying to cross the southern border illegally in May, according to government figures.

"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.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says migrant children are being treated humanely
Sessions acknowledged then that it would mean separating parents from children if they come into the USA illegally. Yet there is no law requiring children to be taken from parents apprehended after unlawfully crossing the border.
