Donald Trump’s now reversed zero-tolerance policy, which separated children from their parents who had illegally crossed into US, led to a massive backlash both offline and on social media. Over the last few weeks, pictures  of children crying after being separated from their family went viral, triggered severe criticism of the Trump administration. Though the decision has been reversed, the anger towards the ‘inhumane’ order by the United States government, was palpable. TIME and New Yorker‘s latest magazine covers have now captured the trauma the children went through at the detention camps. The covers have now united people across the world on social media as they call out Trump’s ‘zero tolerance policy’, which many Holocaust survivors, reportedly said, reminded them of what they had been through.

TIME, which has never minced words when it comes to calling out Donald Trump’s policies, showed the 2-year-old Honduran refugee child, whose photos by Getty Images photographer John Moore went viral, looking up and crying while a towering Trump looked down at her. New Yorker showed little children, with fear in their eyes, peeking from behind the Statue of Liberty.

Here is TIME magazine’s breathtaking cover. 

Meanwhile, another news that got many people questioning TIME’s tenacity when it comes to fact-checking, is that the child featured on their cover, was in fact not separated from her mother. The father of the child reportedly said that his wife was seeking a job and not escaping violence or getting deported.

Following heavy backlash and criticism for his act, Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday (June 20) ending the process of separating children from their elders.
