Has RHONJ Star Joe Giudice Seen His Kids Since He Was Taken Into ICE Custody?

Has RHONJ Star Joe Giudice Seen His Kids Since He Was Taken Into ICE Custody?

A new report is revealing if the Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice has gotten a chance to see his children since being taken into ICE custody last month.

Joe served a 41-month term at the FCI Allenwood Low in Allenwood, Pennsylvania and was released from the prison in March. However, because a judge ordered his deportation in October of last year, Joe was immediately taken into custody by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and transferred to an immigration detention center in western Pennsylvania.

Although Teresa Giudice and their daughters, including Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10, visited Joe during his time at Allenwood, the couple’s attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., told People on April 24 that Joe has asked them not to visit him at the immigration detention center where he’s currently located.

“The facility where Joe is being held does not allow for contact visits,” the attorney explained. “Joe does not want to put Teresa and the girls through the horrific ordeal of driving several hours to visit him and not be able to hug him. They would be restricted to talking on a phone while separated by plexiglass. It’s inhumane that this man can not hug his wife or kiss his daughters.”

While contact visits are out of the question, James confirmed Joe and Teresa speak “several times a day.”

“This has been a grueling fight and they are fighting this together to the very end,” he added.

Following the judge’s deportation order in October, Joe and his attorneys filed an appeal but unfortunately, earlier this month, the Board of Immigration Appeals’ denied the appeal. Joe’s attorneys then filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in hopes of keeping Joe in the U.S. That stay was approved yesterday, temporarily delaying Joe’s deportation. 

“This entire process has been absolutely gut-wrenching for this entire family,” James continued. “We are praying that it ends soon and Joe can come home where he belongs.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 is currently in production and expected to return to Bravo TV later this year.
