DECISION AND ORDER
FRANK P. GERACI, Jr., Chief District Judge.
Pro se Petitioner Manamud Hussein Mahamud ("Petitioner") has filed this action seeking a Writ of Habeas Corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2241. ECF No. 1. Petitioner alleges that he was ordered removed to Somalia, but he has not yet been removed, and instead has remained in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") for over six months pending his deportation. Id. Due to this delay, Petitioner seeks to be released from custody.
The government has moved to dismiss this case because Petitioner has now been deported, making this action moot. See ECF Nos. 10, 11. Petitioner did not respond to the government's motion.
"Where an alien challenging his detention under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 is released during the pendency of his petition under an order of supervision, the petition is rendered moot." Harvey v. Holder, 63 F.Supp.3d 318, 320 (W.D.N.Y. 2014). Here, the uncontroverted evidence demonstrates that Petitioner was removed from the United States on a flight chartered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that departed from the Alexandria International Airport on May 12, 2017. See ECF No. 10-1. As such, this action has become moot, and must be dismissed.
The government's Motion to Dismiss (ECF Nos. 10, 11) is granted, as this case has become moot. No certificate of appealability shall issue, as Petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of a denial of a constitutional right. The Clerk of Court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
