ABSTRACT
The article presents the risk of torture and its prohibition in international law. It defines a framework which examines the risk level of standards of proscription of transfers under the international human rights instruments and the U.S. immigration law. It reflects the torcher jurisprudence which reduces the normative implications of risking torture and provides the prospective remedial view of the proscription.
