The people affected by Trump's new travel ban

Trump's new criteria for visa applicants are going into effect tonight now that the Supreme Court has allowed some of his travel ban to move forward, according to AP. Here's your guide to navigating the new protocols:

Who's affected: New visa applicants from six countries (Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen) and all refugees will be required to have a close family or business tie to the U.S. This caveat will also affect the government's lottery of visas that randomly awards 50,000 green cards each year to those in countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. (Note: If you have a visa that's already been approved, it will not be revoked.)
