In their motion, the Respondents note that the Petitioner was released from ICE custody on October 19, 2015. Because the Petitioner has been released from ICE custody, his petition seeking that very relief is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003) (“a case must be dismissed as moot if the court can no longer provide ‘meaningful relief’”). Accordingly, this matter is due to be dismissed. Khader v. Holder, 843 F. Supp. 2d 1202 (N.D. Ala. 2011). A separate order will be entered. DONE this the 30th day of October, 2015. SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
