U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
ERIC H. HOLDER, et al.,
Case No. 4:12-cv-01868-KOB-HGD
The petitioner, Aloysius Stevens, an alien subject to a final order of removal,
is currently detained in the Etowah County Detention Center in Gadsden, Alabama.
The petitioner alleges in his habeas petition that the U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) has unlawfully detained him for more than six months from the
start of his removal period and that no significant likelihood of his removal in the
reasonably foreseeable future exists. (Docs. 1 & 2). The petitioner seeks his release
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241.
On January 15, 2013, the magistrate judge entered a report recommending that
the court deny this habeas petition because the petitioner failed to show that no
significant likelihood of his removal in the reasonably foreseeable future exists.
(Doc. 10). Neither party filed any objections.1
After careful consideration of the record in this case and the magistrate judge’s
report and recommendation, the court ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s report and
ACCEPTS his recommendations that the court should deny the petition for writ of
habeas corpus. The court finds that under the totality of the circumstances in this case,
the petitioner’s detention is lawful; the petitioner failed to show that no significant
likelihood of removal in the reasonably foreseeable future exists.
The court will enter a separate order in conformity with this Memorandum
DONE and ORDERED this 5th day of February, 2013.
