PEDRO MARTINEZ-CARBAJAL, PETITIONER,
MICHAEL CHERTOFF, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: William Q. Hayes United States District Judge
ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
Petitioner, a detainee in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, proceeding pro se, has filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. Petitioner has also filed a request to proceed in forma pauperis which reflects that he has no funds in his trust account at the facility in which he is presently confined. Petitioner cannot afford the $5.00 filing fee. Thus, the Court GRANTS Petitioner's application to proceed in forma pauperis. The Clerk of the Court shall file the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus without prepayment of the filing fee.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
