A migrant caravan of nearly 8,000 people is heading towards the U.S. southern border, consisting of individuals from approximately 24 different countries, including Central America, Cuba, Venezuela, and Haiti, as well as Iran, Turkey, Syria, and Cameroon.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is set to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to discuss the ongoing border crisis.

Mexico has allowed such caravans to travel through its country to the U.S. border, and López Obrador is calling for more U.S. support for Latin American countries rather than “building walls.” (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

López Obrador said, “We are going to help, as we always do.”

“Mexico is helping reach agreements with other countries, in this case Venezuela,” he continued.

According to the State Department, Blinken, “will discuss unprecedented irregular migration in the Western Hemisphere and identify ways Mexico and the United States will address border security challenges, including actions to enable the reopening of key ports of entry across our shared border.”

The meeting comes amid a record surge of illegal border crossings, with a significant number of migrants encountered attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.
