Is Mexico behind another major migrant caravan?

A 10,000-strong migrant caravan appears to be headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border on Nov. 18 — the same day President Biden is scheduled to meet with Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to talk about immigration, among other things.

“It seems to me that Mexico is using the caravans as leverage [against] the United States," said Tony Payan, director of the Center for the U.S. and Mexico. Payan explains why the timing could be more than coincidence at the Border Report.
