Asylum, Withholding, and CAT
People fleeing persecution in their home countries may be eligible for asylum in the United States, as well as two related protections: withholding of removal and protection under the Convention Against Torture. Many non-citizens in detention apply for these forms of protection, but a lack of legal counsel seriously impedes many of them from winning their cases.
