I agree and even said the same thing earlier but then Time printed a retraction so i was wrong. I guess time did mean to use the girl as an example of Trumps policies.
I believe the original article said the little girl was "facing possible separation from her mother". According to the arresting border agent, he took them to "family" AKA general detention. According to the law, within 48 hours those detentionees are turned over to ICE. The "No Tolerance" policy in effect would suggest that the mother was booked and jailed while the little girl went to Health and Human Services. But we don't know what happened when the mother and child were turned over to ICE, just that Ruiz, the Border Control agent didn't separate them.
Regardless, the little girl is a legitimate representative face of the problem, and using her in a visual political commentary magazine cover art piece is not a big deal, in my opinion.
You see, this is how the state sanctioned propaganda works - it takes an image and portrays it to suit their modus operandi.

I will answer your question, but then I want to ask one of my own, okay? I will answer yours, if you will answer mine. Fair enough?
Answer - No. No bullS#, no deflections, just a straight-up answer of "No"
Okay, now here's my question...
Question - Did Trump make or recommend the making of the policy of 'separating innocent children from their parents and locking them up in cages'?
A simple "yes" or "no," please.
What I asked you is...did he "create" the policy?
So then you agree, Trump did not create the policies to separate children and put them in cages!
