“They obviously are hiding something,” Nelson said. “They are using the excuse — get this — '‘You have to apply two weeks in advance.’”
Nelson, a Democrat, said it was "not a good reflection on the trump administration."

He told reporters he is traveling back to Washington and plans to be on the Senate floor tonight.
