Teresa Giudice’s Estranged Husband Joe Giudice Speaks Out After His Deportation Appeal Is Denied; Says “My Heart Is Aching”

After Teresa Giudice's estranged husband Joe Giudice lost his most recent deportation appeal, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is reacting to the news. "As I proceeded with caution, hoping to win the judge’s sympathy. I was hoping to come home to my girls," Joe told The Hollywood Gossip.

"Today, According to U.S immigration I was told I will never step foot in America again. My appeal was denied," Joe explained, adding: "The dreadful words no one wants to hear, especially now."

"I always feel I belong in the United States with my family, not in Italy," Joe said. "My heart is aching," Joe expresses. "My limbs feel weak."

"I won’t see my girls glowing smile that I loved waking up with every morning now," Joe told The Hollywood Gossip that this simple joy now "is lost."

He added, "That makes me scared it means that my kids world will be without me."

According to the court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Joe’s appeal was denied on Wednesday, April 29.

“This cause came to be considered on a petition for review from the Board of Immigration Appeals and was submitted on November 21, 2019. On consideration whereof, it is now hereby ORDERED and ADJUDGED by this Court that the petition for review of the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals entered on April 11, 2019, is DENIED,” the docs read. “All of the above in accordance with the opinion of this Court.”

Joe can appeal the decision again, his James J. Leonard Jr., told revealed that he is in the process of discussing his options.

“We have always maintained that Joe Giudice belongs in the United States with his family, not in Italy,” Teresa and Joe’s lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. told Page Six on Wednesday, noting that his client is still discussing his options. “The immigration laws in our country are both draconian and antiquated and need to be revisited by forward-thinking members of Congress.”

The decision comes months after he was ordered to be deported back to Italy following his 41-month prison sentence on wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud charges.

The presiding judge ruled that he did indeed commit an aggravated felony (defined in court documents as “an offense that … involves fraud or deceit in which the loss to the victim or victims exceeds $10,000”), which provides grounds for deportation. However, Giudice argued “that because his loans were later forgiven, there was no loss,” but the court was “not persuaded.”

He is currently living in Italy, while his estranged wife Teresa is living in New Jersey with their four daughters, Gia (19), Gabriella (15), Milania (14), and Audriana (10).
