                               BOKO HARAM

  (Ms. ADAMS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Ms. ADAMS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to shed light on the hundreds of 
Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted by Boko Haram nearly 600 days ago. 
Some girls have been recovered, but many more are still missing.
  Boko Haram is now the most dangerous terrorist organization in the 
world, killing more than 6,000 people in 2014 alone.
  While our Nation and the world are reeling from the death and 
destruction ISIS has caused in recent weeks, we must not forget the 
terror that Boko Haram brings every single day.
  Mr. Speaker, I applaud our government's efforts in helping provide 
Nigeria with the support they need to fight these militants. But there 
is more to be done. We cannot turn a blind eye to the destruction and 
bloodshed they have caused. We must continue to dedicate resources and 
support to wipe out the world's deadliest terror organizations.
  There also needs to be a continuous effort to save so many lives from 
falling into Boko Haram's hands.
  I thank Representative Wilson of Florida for leading the charge on 
this issue here in Congress. I am proud to stand with you in the fight 
to Bring Back Our Girls and stop Boko Haram.
