The Court has carefully considered the Request and is otherwise advised in the premises. On January 31, 2011, this Court issued an Order [DE 22] overruling Mr. Muentes's objections [DE 21], adopting Magistrate Judge White's Report and Recommendation [DE 17], and denying Mr. Muentes's Motion to Vacate [DE 1]. On March 31, 2011, Mr. Muentes filed his Request for Certificate of Appealability. See DE 24.

The Court finds that Mr. Muentes has not made such a showing here. For this reason, the Court will deny the Request for Certificate of Appealability. The Court notes that pursuant to Rule 22(b)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Mr. Muentes may request issuance of a certificate of appealability from the Eleventh Circuit. Fed. R. App. P. 22(b)(1). Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Movant Jorge Muentes's Request for Certificate of Appealability [DE 24] is DENIED.
