It comes to be heard on the Respondents motion to dismiss as moot. (Doc. 9). The court concludes that the motion is due to be granted.

Thus, the petitioner s claim for release under an order of supervision or for repatriation is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003) Accordingly, this matter is due to be dismissed as moot. A separate order will be entered. Done this 18th day of September 2013. L.
