Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, was at San Fransisco State Thursday giving a speech against men’s participation in women’s sports for Turning Point USA when she was confronted by an angry mob of far-left woke liberal college students that were violently shouting, “TRANS RIGHTS ARE WOMENS RIGHTS,” as she was hit twice by a man in the crowd.

Gaines said she had been “ambushed and physically hit twice by a man” after giving her speech at SFSU. A conservative women’s right’s advocacy group, The Independent Women’s Forum, came out publicly stating that the incident was “absolutely ludicrous.”

“We strongly condemn the violence perpetrated against [IWF] spokeswoman Riley Gaines on SFSU campus. Riley was violently accosted, ambushed, and physically assaulted during a speech on sex discrimination women face in their own single-sex sports category,” IWF wrote on twitter.

Furthermore, IWF added, “Riley is courageous in speaking up for truth, science and common sense. She has experienced firsthand the injustice female athletes face across America in their own sport.”

In the same Twitter threat IWF quoted Gaine’s statement to the media, saying “Inclusion cannot come at the expense of women.”

On the same day, the Biden administration implemented new Title IX rules that bar schools that receive federal funding from enforcing policies that ban biological males from playing girl’s sports, according to Fox News.  In addition, the state of West Virginia’s Supreme Court voted to allow a 12 year old transgender girl  to continue to compete in women’s sports all while there is an ongoing lawsuit against the statewide ban of trans women competing in women’s sports.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
