MEMORANDUM ORDER OVERRULING OBJECTIONS AND ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
MICHAEL H. SCHNEIDER, District Judge.
Larry Green, an inmate confined at the Federal Correctional Institution at Texarkana, Texas, proceeding pro se , filed the above-styled petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241.
