A YMCA in St. Paul, Minnesota is now offering swim practice once a week to the community’s Muslim Somali girls, offering the girls a safe environment to learn how to swim while accounting for their concerns about modesty. 
While Minnesota’s newspaper noted that this is an important and much-needed program for the community, Fox News saw the story as an opportunity to broadcast their signature brand of fearmongering Islamophobia. 
Fox’s Heather Nauert: 

Well the minority becoming the majority at one community pool. 
Sharia law is now changing everything. 
A YMCA in Minneapolis-St. Paul is starting a swim group for Muslim girls but special considerations have to be made to keep with their religious beliefs.

Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.
