A Georgia state representative posted a severe reprimand on his own Twitter account Saturday, accusing fellow Democrats of prioritizing migrants over inner-city children.
Mesha Mainor has served in the Georgia House of Representatives since January 2021, representing District 56. In a video on Twitter, she accused Democrats of turning their backs on her for being a strong advocate of school choice.
“I support school choice, parental rights and opportunities for children to thrive, especially those who are marginalized and most likely to fail in school,” Mainor began.
“The Democrats in [Georgia State] The Capitol took a tough position and demanded every Democrat vote against the children and for the teachers’ union,” he explained. “I voted yes for parents and yes for children without fail. in schools.”

Mainor justified his position by noting that some schools in his district have 3% proficiency rates in reading and that many children cannot do simple math.
“I’ve got some colleagues who are mad at me to the point where they’re handing out $1,000 checks to anyone who runs against me,” Mainor continued. “I’m not apologizing because my colleagues don’t like my vote.”
Mainor then explained that parents are upset that some politicians are “putting teachers’ unions and donors ahead of their constituents.”

Mainor’s speech got personal when he accused his colleagues of being angry that he stood up for his principles.
“It’s ironic. I say every election year, I hear ‘Black Lives Matter.’ But do they? I see every minority being prioritized except black children living in poverty who can’t read,” Mainor said.
“We will send $ 1,000,000 to the border for immigrant services. But the Black communities, not even a shout-out. I’m sorry, I don’t agree with this,” he added. “I’m not backing down and I’m actually just getting started.”
