On Thursday, Time magazine featured President Donald Trump’s border crisis on its latest cover with an image imagining the president meeting the young girl seen crying in John Moore’s now-symbolic photograph as her mother is apprehended at the border.
While it’s unclear if the young girl is one of more than 2,300 children who have been separated from their parents since the beginning of May—Moore recently told the Guardian that the US government hasn’t been “forthcoming” on the girl’s status—the photo has since become a defining image amid the public outcry over Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.
Time‘s cover on Thursday envisions what a face-to-face meeting between Trump and the children directly impacted by his administration’s policies would look like.
