Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe Giudice, has been released from prison and is ICE custody. According to E! News, Joe was released from Allenwood Low Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania this morning but remains in federal custody with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE.) He is set to be transferred to an immigration detention center, where he will wait for the results of his ongoing deportation case. If his appeal is not approved he could be deported back to Italy. Teresa and Joe’s situation has played out on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and they have been through a lot. This is a very difficult time for them, but Teresa has been ‘Standing Strong.’
Teresa revealed during the recent reunion that if Joe gets deported, she will stay here in America with their four daughters. She explained how she is very conflicted about everything. Teresa said, “I hope that’s not a decision I have to make. But like, to pick up my children and just move to another country, I don’t think that would be good for my children. So I mean, so no, I probably wouldn’t.” Teresa and Joe have been married since 1999 and have four daughters together: Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana.
Teresa’s attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., told Page Six last week that Joe wouldn’t be able to return home because of his pending immigration case. He stated, “The custodial aspect of Mr. Giudice’s federal sentence does in fact expire on or about March 14, 2019. However, due to the immigration order and detainer lodged against him, that is not a release date meaning he is not coming home on that date. We are optimistic that once his appeal is heard, he will receive the appropriate relief and will be able to come home and remain there with his family. They love him, they support him and they miss him tremendously.”
This situation is heartbreaking. I’m praying for the best for them all.
