New 'Time' magazine cover shows Trump looking down at crying migrant child

Unlike the fake Trump Time magazine covers in the president's golf clubs, the magazine's new cover - featuring the president being forced to face an immigrant child - is very real, and it's all over the internet today.

Donald Trump has got himself another Time magazine cover, but it's probably not one he'll be rushing to get his hands on.

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

On Wednesday President Trump signed an executive order that he said would end the separation of children from their parents when families cross illegally.

The image of a crying immigrant child - a cutout from a Getty Images picture from photographer John Moore that has come to represent the ongoing border crisis - is juxtaposed next to the president, who is looking down at the girl.

"And while Trump ultimately capitulated on the forced separation of children, his new order suggested that families would be detained not only together, but perhaps indefinitely".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Day 1 of the annual horse racing event, along with other members of the Royal Family. The ultra-modern frock featured an edgy asymmetrical hemline - a stark contrast to the sea of pastel-coloured dresses on show.

Valera said the little girl and her mother, Sandra Sanchez, have been detained together in the Texas border town of McAllen, where Sanchez has applied for asylum, and they were not separated after being detained near the border.

"As soon as it was over, they were put into a van", he told the magazine. A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection also confirmed to the Daily Beast that the mother and daughter were not separated.

"[The mother] was told to set the child down while she was searched".

"It's hard as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger", he added. 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. Moore further said that he really wanted to "pick the girl up" at that moment but he couldn't. Last week, he snapped the photo that became one of the most influential images detailing the separation of families under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

Valera pushed back against the portrayal's of his daughter's story, saying it should not cast doubt on the "human rights violations" taking place at the border.
