Greta Van Susteren tonight called on her viewers to help her get Jill Tahmooressi on TIME Magazine’s annual list of the most influential people in the world.

“Her Marine son was locked up in Mexico in a hopeless situation, and by her sheer determination, her influence, she got the attention of the entire world,” Van Susteren said of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s mother.

Van Susteren remarked that Tahmooressi managed to get the attention of Mexico and the media – including “On The Record.” She also secured more than 100,000 signatures on a White House petition within 30 days.

“She never gave up […] This mother of a Marine, a nurse from Florida, is influential big time,” Van Susteren said.

Van Susteren urged viewers to tweet #TIME100 and #JillTahmooressi to get the Marine’s mother on the list of most influential people.
