System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has called for “an Armenia style peaceful revolution” in the United States in response to a provocative Time magazine cover showing Donald Trump staring down at a crying immigrant child.
In an Instagram post, Tankian writes:
“Sometimes a picture says it all. The USA is in a state of utter regression. Time for an Armenia style peaceful revolution no?”
While the girl, 2-year-old Yanela Sanchez was never separated from her mother, Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal stood by the cover, arguing that Sanchez was “the most visible symbol of the ongoing immigration debate in America.”
Nevertheless, the magazine issued a correction, stating that “the girl was not carried away screaming by US Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together."
Daily Mail.com writes that mother and child were part of a group left Honduras on June 3 and were caught by U.S. Border Patrol agents after crossing the Rio Grande river on a raft.
