The Honduran toddler pictured sobbing in a pink jacket before US President Donald Trump on an upcoming cover of Time magazine was not separated from her mother at the US border, according to a man who says he is the girl's father.

After more than 2,000 families were ripped apart, Trump signed an executive order ending the policy on Wednesday.

Yanela Denise became an iconic symbol of opposition to the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy, under which adults who cross the border illegally are prosecuted.

The photo of the crying girl was shot by John Moore, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for Getty Images, who has been photographing immigrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border for years.

"As soon as it was over, they were put into a van", he told the magazine.

Time published the cover along with a cover story with the headline, "A Reckoning After Trump's Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We?". He took it during a ride-along with a Customs and Border Patrol agent on June 12. In its original form, it showed the two-year-old girl reacting to her mother's detention by a border agent in Texas.

The issue of the magazine will hit newsstands July 2, by then over a week after Trump signed an executive order to end the separations of children and their parents who have been detained for illegally crossing the US border. I asked her, why?

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull refused to comment on President Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

Moore told the Post that in the dark he had not been able to count the number of women and children. "I am waiting to see what happens with them".

"And while Trump ultimately capitulated on the forced separation of children, his new order suggested that families would be detained not only together, but perhaps indefinitely".

"I've worked in this business for many years and oftentimes we cover stories that we think are really important but in the end they may not resonate with the public", said Moore. "I had to stop and take deep breaths". The magazine refuted his story, saying that's not how it chooses people.
