My staff is in touch with constituents stuck in Morocco and other countries due to COVID-19 and I’m concerned @StateDept isn’t doing enough to assist U.S. citizens trying to return home. We are working with the U.S. government to get our constituents home.

Some of my constituents are stranded abroad, desperately trying to get home from areas being hit by COVID-19 but unable to leave due to travel bans. I'm calling on Sec. Pompeo to immediately help us facilitate their return to the United States.https://t.co/5beUqVJdQb

I’ve heard from several Delaware families who have loved ones stuck overseas & unable to return home. I’m pushing Sec. Pompeo directly to ensure the State Dept is doing everything it can to help these Americans get the care they need & return home safely.https://t.co/JebSUX0VqP
