See Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001) (when there is no reasonable likelihood that a foreign government will accept an alien's return in the reasonably foreseeable future, the INS may not detain the alien for more than the presumptively reasonable period of six months). Respondent has filed a Suggestion of Mootness (Doc. #3) asserting that Petitioner was removed from the United States on March 10, 2010, and that he is, therefore, no longer subject to detention.
