On November 13, 2015, Respondents filed a motion to dismiss the petition as moot. (Doc. 12). In the motion, Respondents note that Petitioner was removed from the United States on October 13, 2015.

See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003). Accordingly, Respondents’ motion to dismiss is due to be granted and the petition is due to be dismissed. 1 A separate order will be entered.
