Is travelling to Puerto rico considered as ' leaving US " , can I travel between US mainland and Puerto rico while I am on withholding of removal ?
Yes, you can travel to PR. No visa or passport is needed to travel to Puerto Rico from the USA. It is considered a domestic flight.
Occasionally, one may encounter Customs and Border Protection officers who may inquire as to whether you are a citizen. If this should happen, be prepared to show documents that you have legal presence in the U.S. But, because it is very rare, there is little need to be overly concerned.
