Time Stands by Separation Cover Photo, Adds Story Correction

Time magazine on Friday stood by its decision to feature a crying girl from Honduras on this week's cover after the father disclosed that she had not been separated from her mother at the U.S. border under the Trump administration's immigration policy.

The magazine included this correction at the bottom of the story, an essay by Getty Images photographer John Moore: "The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she was taken from the scene.

"The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together," Time's correction said.

Moore took the picture at the U.S. Border Patrol detention center in McAllen, Texas, on June 12.

Time came under heavy attack for the cover, including tweets by Donald Trump Jr. and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

But the girl's father, Denis Varela, said Friday that the Honduran foreign ministry told him that his daughter was detained with her mother in McAllen and they were not separated.

Varela, a dockworker who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, said he had not heard from his wife or daughter in nearly three weeks.

The girl's mother apparently took their daughter to the United States without telling him.

He said the Honduran ministry had given him the girl's detainee identification number.

Varela said he was told his daughter was in McAllen with her mother, but nothing else.
