JOE GIUDICE AND FAMILY EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED AFTER DEPORTATION APPEAL DENIED
Upon release from prison, Giudice was placed inthe custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE,due to his crimes and not being a U.S. citizen. (Immigrants who have a so-called green card, or legal U.S. residency, as Guidice is said to have,according to The North Jersey Record, nonetheless are subject to removal from the U.S. if they commit crimes and have not become naturalized U.S. citizens.)After six months, the RHONJ star husband was granted permission to travel and reside in his native Italy while waiting on the final decision of his deportation appeal.
The North Jersey Record said that Giudice came to the United States with his parents when he was just 1 year old, and that he obtained a green card, which enabled him to live and work in the U.S.
Wife Teresa said she once tried to get Joe to apply for U.S. citizenship but never made it a priority over the years.
When I married him, I didnt know, she said. I remember I tried to make him, I tried to fill out the paperwork. It was never on my radar. Its not like I married an immigrant and Im like, Oh my God, I have to make him an American citizen. Never thought of that at all.
