Withholding of Removal is similar to the relief of Asylum in that it is a form of relief granted to someone who fears persecution in their home Country on account of a protected class such as race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. See INS v. Stevic, 467 U.S. 407 (1984). Unlike asylum however, the Burden of Proof for Withholding of Removal is higher. See INS v. Cardoza-Fonseca, 480 U.S. 421, 440 (1987).
Additionally, a Grant of Withholding of Removal does not carry the same benefits as a grant of Asylum. Notably, Withholding Grant does not lead to a green card or citizenship, a Grant does not allow one to travel outside the United States, and a Grant does not allow one to petition for one’s family members to come into the United States.
