Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Teresa Giudice's husband Joe Giudice has been permitted to stay in the United States a little longer. The 47-year-reality star is granted permission to remain in the country during his ongoing deportation battle.
The court documents obtained by The Blast stated:
The petitioner's motion for a stay of removal is granted. The requirements for granting a stay have been satisfied. ...The temporary stay of removal previously granted is vacated as no longer necessary.
The paper further stated:
Petitioner's unopposed motions to seal Exhibit C to the Moseley Declaration and to amend/correct his stay motion are granted.
Following the court decision, Joe's attorney told People;
We are grateful that the Court has granted the stay. Joe looks forward to continuing this fight to the very end. There is nothing more important to him than returning home to his wife and kids.
The news comes days after Joe's deportation was postponed, which Giudice was granted at the end of April 2019.
Both Joe and his wife Teresa were indicted in 2013 over hiding their properties in a bankruptcy filing. Joe was also found guilty of not paying tax returns between 2004 and 2008. Teresa served 11 months in state prison, and Joe served 41 months in prison for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
In January 2018, Joe was transferred to Pennsylvania prison from New Jersey. The transfer was reportedly made after Joe requested his placement in a residential drug and abuse program. Joe was released in March.
Since his release, his family has been pleading with President Donald Trump to pardon Joe and spare his deportation back to Italy. The President and the White House press team is yet to comment on the case.
In America, immigrants can be deported if they are convicted of "a crime" or an "aggravate felony." Although Joe has been living in America since his childhood, he never obtained American citizenship.
Joe and Teresa share four children; daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. Lately, the family has been awaiting their fate in western Pennsylvania that houses immigration detainees.
