NBC: ‘Migrant crisis’ and inflation cause spike in homelessness among LA students
On Thursday’s broadcast of NBC Nightly News, NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk reported on student homelessness in Los Angeles and argued that cost-of-living increases “and a migrant crisis” are two key factors in a spike in student homelessness.
The segment began with part of an interview with Alberto Carvalho, superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, saying, “We have over 13,000 students experiencing homelessness, that number has increased by almost 19%.”
Gosk then stated, “An increase in evictions, higher costs of living and a migrant crisis are all leading to more students without a permanent home.”
She then played a clip of Carvalho saying, “I truly believe that the numbers we are currently tracking are just the tip of the iceberg.”
