In their motion, Respondents note that Petitioner was removed from the United States on December 4, 2013. (Doc. # 16-1). Because Petitioner has been removed, the court can no longer provide meaningful relief. Thus, the court finds that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003). Accordingly, Respondents motion to dismiss is due to be granted and the petition is due to be dismissed. A separate order will be entered.
