Withholding of Removal (Restriction on Removal) under the Convention against Torture

Withholding of Removal (Restriction on Removal) under the Convention against Torture

Definition

A protection that prevents the removal of a noncitizen to a country where the noncitizen would, more likely than not, be tortured unless an exception applies, such as if the noncitizen has participated in the persecution of others on protected grounds, committed a particularly serious crime, or presents a danger to national security. If a noncitizen qualifies for protection under the Convention against Torture but does not qualify for withholding of removal, the noncitizen will be granted deferral of removal.
