Joe Giudice has filed an appeal in his bid to stop his deportation to Italy once his prison sentence is over in March of 2019. It’s been a long road for Teresa Giudice’s husband. Now she and their four daughters are just hoping that he ends up in New Jersey instead of Italy.
Joe’s attorney, James Leonard told E! News, “The appeal has been filed and we remain optimistic that Joe will soon be home with his family where he belongs. We are extremely grateful for Joe’s immigration attorneys Jerry Gonzales and Tom Moseley and are very confident in them.”
Joe came to the United States when he was 1-year-old. Joe never became a citizen, although it is unclear why he did not do so. His parents became US citizens as did his siblings. He got married in the country and his four daughters were born on US soil. Joe was eligible deportation because he committed a committed crime of “moral turpitude.”

The Real Housewives if New Jersey couple plead guilty to federal fraud charges in 2014. In 2015, Teresa served nearly one year in prison, while Joe began his 41-month sentence in 2016.
It is obvious that Joe’s wife, Teresa, and their four daughters, Gia Giudice, Gabriella Giudice, Milania Giudice, and Audriana Giudice are stunned and saddened by this latest legal news. Teresa even admitted that she chose not to tell Audriana, as she is just 9 years old.

Teresa recently told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that she would be open to speaking with President Donald Trump about a pardon for her husband. Teresa had competed on Celebrity Apprentice. Perhaps having friends in high places will help Joe’s case?
