Mr. Karami challenges the legality of his continued detention by federal immigration authorities pending his removal from the United States under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1101 et seq. See generally Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001). The respondents filed a motion to dismiss this action as moot. (Doc. 4).

Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003); Soliman v. United States ex rel. INS, 296 F.3d 1237, 1242-43 (11th Cir. 2002). The Court will grant the respondents’ motion and dismiss this action by separate order. DONE, this 16th day of October, 2017. MADELINE HUGHES HAIKALA U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE 2
