Time Magazine revealed their soon to be released July 2, 2018 cover photo that will feature President Donald Trump looking down at a crying migrant child after being separated from her parents, with the worlds “Welcome to America”. It was a stab at the President and his “zero-tolerance” illegal immigration policy, and designed to depict the President a callous evil zealot.Time Magazine releasedthe photo and said…

 TIME’s new cover: A reckoning after Trump’s border separation policy: What kind of country are we? https://ti.me/2JVINI1 

The funny thing is, the child in the photo is a two-year-old Honduran girl, who is supposedly crying for her mother. It was reported that the girl was taken to McAllen Texas, and placed in a detention facility, but that story now appears to be falling apart.

Below is the original photo taken.

A Honduran asylum seeker, 2, and her mother are taken into custody near the US-Mexico border. The Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy for undocumented immigrants calls for the separation of parents and children. 

The photo in question is a heart-wrenching image, taken by award-winning Getty Images photographer John Moore, was spread to news outlets worldwide, and designed to smear the President as an evil and vile man, and his policies as cruel and abhorrent. The picture of the little girl became a symbol for the left to depict the President and his Administration as evil Nazi’s who are stripping innocent children from their loving parents. But now, it has been confirmed by the Washington Post that the father of the girl revealed that the child was not separated from her mother. In fact, the mother, 32-year-old Sandra Sanchez, was detained with her nearly 2-year-old daughter, Yanela, at a holding facility in McAllen Texas.

The United States Customs and Border Protection Agency, and Nelly Jerez, a Honduran deputy foreign minister, both confirmed Valera’s account that the child was still with her mother.

This was the second time that Sanchez had crossed the U.S. Borders illegally. In fact, ICE revealed that she was deported back to Honduras in July 2013. Sanchaz then left a second time from Tegucigalpa Honduras on June 3, 2018, and told her husband that she hoped to seek a better life. She didn’t tell her husband that she was taking their youngest child, leaving him desperately concerned for her safety on the journey. Mrs. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by United States Border Patrol near Hidalgo, Texas on June 12, and was transferred to ICE custody on June 17th. Then she was being held at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.

Mr. Sanchez had not had any contact with his wife or daughter after their departure, so when he saw the photo of them, and became distressed, because he said that he couldn’t imagine his daughter in that situation.

Moore  the photographer took a picture of the girl crying as the border agent patted down the mother. Then, Moore told the Washington Post that the woman picked up her daughter, they walked into the van, and the van drove away. When the barrage of attacks came for creating a false narrative to paint the Trump Administration in a bad light, he said that he didn’t know what happened to the girl, but based on what he called’ “new federal policies,” he speculated that they would be split up. He said…

“I don’t know what the truth is, I fear they were split up.”

However, the Time magazine story was originally conveyed the photographers story by saying that the girl was carried away by border agents screaming. Later, when Time was caught with the false narrative, they corrected the account to say that the two were taken away together.

A Time story recounting the photographer’s experience initially stated the girl was carried away screaming by border agents, and later corrected the article to say that was incorrect and that the two were actually taken away together.

Earlier this week, Valera received a phone call from an official with the Honduran foreign ministry, letting him know his wife and daughter were detained together. While he doesn’t know anything about the conditions of the facility, or what is next for Sanchez and Yalena, he was relieved to hear they were in the same place.

What Time didn’t say was the fact that the Sanchez’s were not trying to escape violence. Instead, Yanela’s father said that they were actually trying to find work. In fact, the The Daily Mail reported that….

“He said that Sandra had always wanted to experience ‘the American dream’ and hoped to find a good job in the States.”

Mr. Sanchez

Also, they failed to mention that this was her second attempt to come to the United States illegally, which is a misdemeanor. Furthermore, the American taxpayer’s had to pay for deporting her previously in 2013.

Also, Time failed to mention that she left behind three other children including Wesly, 14, Cindy, 11 and Brianna, six. Therefore, if things were so bad for her, why would she leave her husband and  three of her children? Also, Mr. Sanchez said..

“Yanela is the youngest of four children and she was the only one that traveled with her mother, a decision that surprised him.”

Mr. Sanchez

Mr. Sanchez was also angry that she took their youngest child, when he stated…

“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, I don’t have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don’t know what could happen.”

Mr. Sanchez

Finally, Daily Caller reported that Sanchez allegedly paid thousands of dollars to secure a smuggler that could help her and her daughter make it to the United States. They reported that…

“Denis said that he believes the journey across the border is only worth it to some degree, and admits that it’s not something he would ever consider,” Daily Caller wrote. “He said he heard from friends that his wife paid $6,000 for a coyote — a term for someone who smuggles people across the border.”

Additionally, what TIME magazine doesn’t say is how the laws that separate families goes back to 1997, when President Clinton was in office. The Flores Consent Decree was issued, which says that unaccompanied immigrant children can be held for 20 days. This was in an effort to help protect the children from criminal aliens, and human trafficking. Then, the left-wing Ninth Circuit Court had a ruling that extended the 20-day period to children who come as part of illegal alien family groups as well. So, as you see, this is a matter of law, not any sort of “new” Trump policy.

Also, the media and democrats fail to mention that the laws that are on the books today, were actually signed and put into effect in 2008, when former President George W. Bush was the President, and the Democrats controlled both the House of Representatives, and the Senate.

In fact, in 2014 even then President Barack Obama’s Administration blamed the Bush Administration’s law known as “Trafficking Victims Prevention Reauthorization Act, that was signed into law by Bush in 2008 for the sudden influx of unaccompanied minors at the border. However, Obama failed to mention the fact that the legislation was designed, debated, and passed by the Democrat led Congress in both houses.

“Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in solving the problem? If the preference is for politics, then it won’t be solved.”

Former President Barack Obama

In the end, Obama’s request focused more on dealing with the illegal alien minors that were already in the United States, and not securing the border.

Now, in 2018, President Trump brought light to the issue, when President Trump tweeted

“Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from their parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.”

President Donald J. Trump

The Mainstream Media went ballistic and have tried to paint it as a new Trump Administration policy, but the facts are indisputable. Never-the-less, President Trump worked to fix the broken system that the Democrats and Republicans complain about, but Democrats ‘resist’ real progress, and simply push socialist propaganda. Therefore, President Trump signed an executive order this week to remedy the situation until Congress can do a permanent fix.

President Trump signs order stopping his policy of separating families at border: “We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together. I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.” https://nbcnews.to/2KamRrN 

President Trump said…

“We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together,” the President said. “I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.”

 “It is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources,”

President Donald J. Trump

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen called on Congress to fix the law that calls for a separation of immigrant families at the border, and praised the President for issuing the directive to temporarily resolve the issue.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)  proposed  and submitted a bill to resolve the separation of families at the border,  Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says his party will not take action for the migrant children, will not support, and will not vote for, in order to “keep the focus on Trump.” Meanwhile, the Progressive propaganda wing of their party (aka… Mainstream Media) will continue to do everything in their power to paint the President and his Administration in the worst light possible.
