Despite a change in the news cycle that has featured ISIS, Ray Rice and Ferguson, Miami Congresswoman Frederica Wilson fights to keep the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls in the news.
After the kidnappings, Wilson spearheaded a bill to denounce Boko Haram.
Wilson also flew to Nigeria to meet parents of the girls. This week on Capitol Hill — Rep. Wilson met with three girls who escaped Boko Haram. Over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls remain in captivity.
“Boko Haram has the potential to explode any day, like ISIS,” Wilson said in a statement. “Now we have major international crises to deal with in Iraq. The international community must not let this terror continue. We still tweet daily, #bringbackourgirls, for the safe return of the kidnapped Nigerian school girls.”
“They’ve experienced unspeakable horrors that no child should ever have to endure just because they want and deserve an education.”
