Rare Guardado Inquest Begins, COVID Unemployment Cliff Approaches

On the Nov. 20 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss

International Students 
COVID-19 has contributed to a drop in student enrollment at local colleges and universities. But Adolfo Guzman Lopez explains other factors in the decline, including xenophobic sentiment.

Long Recovery Journey
We know that new coronavirus cases are shooting up but we don’t hear as often about those who have recovered. Jackie Fortier shares the story of a local artist’s long recovery journey.

Unemployment Cliff
Two federal unemployment programs under the CARES Act are slated to expire in December, which could end benefits for about 750,000 Californians. David Wagner discusses the so-called “unemployment cliff.”

Guardado Inquest
The L.A. County Coroner is holding an inquest into the killing of Andres Guardado, an 18-year-old shot in the back and killed by a sheriff’s deputy. Frank Stoltze explains why this event is so rare and significant.
