“In Jordan, the delegation will visit programs that support Syrian refugees living in local communities. They will also meet with representatives from the Government of Jordan and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.”

The five senators — John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) — are scheduled to make their findings public at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
