In accordance with the "Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996," as codified at 28 U.S.C. 2244(b), effective April 24, 1996, before leave to file a second or successive petition can be granted by the United States Court of Appeals, it is the applicant' s burden to make a prima facie showing that he satisfies either of the two conditions stated below and in 28 U.S.C. 2244(b). (b)(1) a claim presented in a second or successive habeas corpus application under [28 U.S.C.] section 2254 that was presented in a prior application shall be dismissed. (2) a claim presented in a second or successive habeas corpus application under [28 U.S.C.] section 2254 that was not presented in a prior application shall be dismissed unless-- (A) the applicant shows that the claim relies on a new rule of constitutional law, made retroactive to cases on collateral review by the Supreme Court, that was previously unavailable; or (B)(I) the factual predicate for the claim could not have been discovered previously through the exercise of due diligence; and (ii) the facts underlying the claim, if proven and viewed in light of the evidence as a whole, would be sufficient to establish by clear and convincing evidence that, but for constitutional error, no reasonable factfinder would have found the applicant guilty of the underlying offense.
