Respondent filed an answer to the petition on February 2, 2017. (ECF No. 2.) The following day, Petitioner submitted a letter to the Court, stating that his removal proceedings successfully terminated, and he was released from custody. (ECF No. 3.)

Therefore, the Court will dismiss this action. An appropriate Order follows. Date: February 7, 2017 At Newark, New Jersey s/ John Michael Vazquez JOHN MICHAEL VAZQUEZ United States District Judge 2
