Joe Giudice Could Be Deported if Convicted

OMG 14

joe giudiceTeresa and Joe Giudice were recently charged with 39 counts of fraud and could both face jail time if convicted, but the bad news doesn't stop there. According to Harlan York, an immigration attorney, Joe Giudice could be deported to Italy if he’s found guilty. You read that right ... Joe. Giudice. Could. Be. Deported. Even though he's been married to Teresa for over 10 years, he never became an American citizen. Uh-oh.

I’ll be the first to say that Joe is my least favorite character on the show (he just gives me the creeps, what can I say?), but I would never in a million years wish deportation on anyone. Especially someone who has four daughters to take care of. That could be completely detrimental to him, his daughters, and the rest of the family.

If all of my hours of watching Law and Order have taught me anything, immigration laws are very strict, which means Joe is in some serious trouble. (This in no way should imply that I don't think he's already in some deep, smelly doo-doo, because he totally is.)

Immediately, my heart goes out to their four little girls, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. I could never imagine trying to cope with the idea of my parents going through a trial, let alone being forced to leave the country. Ever.

It's already completely awful for the girls that their father (and mother -- no one's forgetting about you, Teresa) might be going to jail, but going to jail and being forced to leave the country are two completely different things. At least when you go to jail, you have a release date (in most cases) and visiting hours. If Joe is forced to leave the country, it's very unlikely that he'd be allowed back in. 

He would miss out on seeing his baby girls grow into beautiful women, Teresa would be forced to raise their daughters on her own (assuming she doesn't go to jail), and probably the worst repercussion of them all, the girls wouldn't have their daddy around. Joe might have some major flaws, and I mean major, but I truly hope that deportation doesn't come into play.

Do you think that Joe will be deported?

That's how it works. If he did the crime- out he goes. I do not feel badly for him or for his wife. Their poor children, however, will suffer because of their stupidity.

He would still have to go to jail. He wouldn't be deported until after he served his sentence.

Might be better for his entire family if they move to Italy and start to lead a more normal, less drama filled life.

I agree. It would be best for them all to move to Italy.

Those girls aren't going to turn into beautiful women first off. Second, the best thing that could happen to them is to have both their crazy, criminal parents locked up and live the rest of their childhoods out of the spotlight. Anyway, nothing's stopping them all moving to Italy and raising the girls there.

That's because he isn't a welfare-leeching illegal.

He should just change his name to Jose and stop paying six figures in taxes each year, then he could commit murder and no one will still want him deported, because libertards and conseratards alike LOOOVE illegal aliens...

Sorry but no they won't be going to italy until all this is over. They had to turn over passports. And if they did it they should get jail time, i would rather get deported to my home country where i still have family than be locked up.
