In the previous instance, the Trump administration revoked the 7% country-cap norm for green card applicants and now in yet another rejig has announced new set of rules that could affect individuals applying for permanent residencies and visas to the US. As per the new rule, income will be made a major criterion in the issuance of visa and grant of permanent residency.

Asylum seekers and refugees will be exempt from the new norms and the the rules would not be applied retroactively, officials said.
