The World Press Photo organization has selected “Crying Girl on the Border” as its photo of the year.

The picture, taken on June 12 near the United States/Mexico border by Getty photographer John Moore, shows a 2-year-old Honduran girl crying while her mother was being searched. The pair had been stopped by Texas border patrol agents along with several others after rafting across the Rio Grande.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Netherlands-based group quoted the photographer saying that the “image touched many people’s hearts, as it did mine, because it humanizes a larger story.”

The Daily Caller also noted the following:  The girl’s mother, Sandra Sanchez, had previously been deported from the United States in 2013.

DML News founder and immigration expert Dennis Michael Lynch responded to the article in a Twitter post on Saturday, as follows:

Talk about manipulating the narrative. Where’s the after picture when she’s getting a free education? Or the encore photo taken while on her favorite ride at Disney. Lots of American kids in photos shown crying hungry, but that ain’t sellable.
