Another media lie exposed. Time Magazine, another liberal rag whose goal it is to take down our President, used a “fake news” cover on their publication this week to push a phony narrative of President Trump and his administration ripping crying children away from their
After Time Magazine shamelessly published a photo of a young illegal alien child crying, the Daily Mail reported the truth about the illegal alien mother and his child she took with him to help her get back into the United State.
Here’s the tweet promoting the Time Magazine cover that liberals and their allies in the media used to push a false narrative of President Trump separating families at the border.

The father of the Honduran girl who became the face of the family separation crisis has revealed that he still has not been in touch with his wife or daughter but was happy to learn they are safe.
Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’
‘You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,’ he said.
He revealed that his wife had previously mentioned her wish to go to the United States for a ‘better future’ but did not tell him nor any of their family members that she was planning to make the trek.
‘I didn’t support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that? But it was her decision at the end of the day.’
Here’s the TRUTH about the crying baby from the US Border Agent Carlos Ruiz who found the mother (who was deported once before in 2013) and her toddler after they crossed the Rio Grande to illegally gain entry from Mexico into the United States.
CBS News reports- The as she and her mother are detained in Texas has grabbed worldwide attention and come to symbolize the intense debate about separating children from their parents. Time magazine put the young girl on , but the Border Patrol agent involved in the dramatic scene says the photo might be a little misleading. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to CBS News the mother and daughter are being housed together at a facility in Texas and her immigration proceedings are ongoing.
“We were patrolling the border. It was after 10 o’clock at night,” Border Patrol agent Carlos Ruiz told CBS News’ David Begnaud. He was the first to encounter Sandra Sanchez and her daughter after they allegedly crossed the Rio Grande River into Texas illegally.
“We asked her to set the kid down in front of her, not away from her, she was right in front of her…So we can properly search the mother,” Ruiz said. “So the kid immediately started crying as she set her down. I personally went up to the mother and asked her ‘Are you doing OK? Is the kid OK?’ and she said, ‘Yes. She’s tired and thirsty. It’s 11 o’clock at night.'”
John Moore, the Getty photographer who was traveling with US Border Agent Carlos Ruiz explains how, when he took the photo, he knew the image of the “distressed little girl” would “be important”, and that he believes it “raised awareness” of Trump’s “zero-tolerance policy”
John Moore, a special correspondent and senior staff photographer for Getty Images, took the photo and is now speaking out to defend his work.
“The photograph I took is a straightforward and honest image; it shows a brief moment in time of a distressed little girl, whose mother is being searched as they are both taken into custody. I believe this image has raised awareness of the zero-tolerance policy of the current administration,” he told ABC News on Friday.

So, why didn’t Moore come forward when the mainstream media was pushing a false narrative that the toddler in the photo was “separated” from her mother? If he was there, he certainly saw that she was standing next to her mother.
Moore told ABC News earlier this week that he took the picture while on a ride-along with a Customs and Border Protection agent in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. They saw a group of roughly 20 mothers and children “gathered on a dirt road.” The agents spoke with and searched the group, and when the mother from Honduras put her daughter on the ground, the girl, whose name he did not learn, “started screaming immediately.”
Moore noted in that earlier conversation with ABC News that the mother and child were together when they left with authorities and he didn’t see the pair formally separated, nor had he been able to confirm whether or not they were separated afterward, though the policy indicates that they could be separated.
He stood by his reporting Friday as well, saying “at no point was it ever reported that the girl and her mother had definitely been separated, but at the time I took the photo that was a very real possibility.”
“I think it’s been very clear from the start that the mother and daughter were taken away in the van together but that we didn’t know what would happen to them. I’m glad we have discovered they were kept together, however that wasn’t the case for a number of asylum seekers along the border,” Moore told ABC News today.
Moore said that while the pair were not separated, he still views their situation as one impacted by the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.
“I’m very happy to learn that they are together,” Moore said. “Unfortunately, they are together in detention, which is a feature of the “zero tolerance” policy. Previously they would have been processed and released, pending an immigration court date.” –ABC News
