President Donald Trump yesterday signed an Executive Order that will prevent the separation of children of illegal migrants that enter the United States without proper documentation and due process.
This comes amidst widespread outrage over the pictures and videos of children crying after being separated from their parents upon entering the United States under Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy which makes it mandatory to treat migrants that cross the United States border illegally has criminals regardless of any asylum claims they might have.
Meanwhile, those children that have already been separated from their parents have no assurance that they will be reunited with them any time soon as they are due to enter the foster-care system in the United States.
Time’s cover simply puts all of the blame on President Trump who has insisted that the United States cannot continue to allow illegal migrants into its borders without any major repercussions.
This is a very divisive issue and moment in America and Time has captured it poignantly with its cover.
