The new cover features a picture of Trump looking down at a crying young migrant girl with the words "Welcome to America" in the background.

"As a father myself, it was very hard for me to see these families detained, knowing that they would soon be split up", Moore told Getty's blog Foto. The photo is taken from the little girl's eye level, while the adults stand over her, out of frame.

Likewise, the cover story, "A Reckoning After Trump's Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We?" by Karl Vick, doesn't mince words about what it sees as the eroding of our traditional norms and values by the current president.

The cover is for the July 2 edition of the magazine, which will appear on newsstands the week of Independence Day.

Donald Trump may have announced the end to his breathtakingly cruel child separation policy yesterday. The striking use of these two images together exemplifies the debate around immigration, family separation, and the "zero tolerance" policy, which the Trump administration instituted in early May. Since Attorney-General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, almost 2,000 children have been taken away from their parents.
