Ovidio Guzmán, son of former Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, was captured by Mexican security forces last week, just days ahead of President Biden's visit to Mexico City to attend the North American Leaders Summit.
Capturing Guzmán could be a way for López Obrador to show the U.S. that he is "in control of the armed forces and Mexico’s security situation," Gladys McCormick, Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations, tells CNN. "It also defuses the power behind any ask from the Biden administration to stem the tide of fentanyl and other narcotics across the border," she adds.
