In the stark photo illustration, the towering figure of Trump looms over a sobbing child, who is the subject of a now-iconic photograph taken recently by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore.

Time magazine has always known to come up with unique covers of raging issues and this time it's no different.

"These folks, they didn't know what was about to happen" with the policy leading to the separation of families, photographer John Moore told ABC News.

A photo showing a young girl at the U.S. -Mexico border, crying as an officer searched her mother, has gone viral.

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

Moore says that the series of photographs he captured that night were hard for him to take "as a journalist, as a human being, and especially as a father" as he knew that the children would soon be separated from their parents into separate detention centers. That bright light you see on their faces coming from US Border Patrol.

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", the President said. The girl's mother was being frisked and body-searched (after which she was reportedly detained) when Moore took this picture.

According to Washington Post, Moore once spoke about how single people who crossed the river during the day and then ran or hid from the Border Patrol.

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. "I had to stop and take deep breaths", he continued.

The cover comes a day after the president signed an executive order to stop his administration's policy of separating immigrant children from their families at the USA border.
