Teresa Giudice doesn’t want anything to do with her husband’s deportation. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is reportedly in denial after a judge ordered her husband, Joe Giudice, to leave the country. Will Teresa come to terms with her emotions before it’s too late?
A judge ordered Joe’s deportation back in March. The reality star filed a cancellation with the Department of Justice’s immigration division in May, though an official ruling has yet to be made on the repeal. Joe is currently in prison for fraud and is not expected to be released until March of next year. It is possible that he gets deported before his sentence is up, but Teresa doesn’t want to even consider coming to terms with Joe getting the boot.
An inside source told Radar Online that the RHONY star refuses to talk about Joe being deported in the near future. Instead, she is fixated on what their life will be like once he gets out of prison and doesn’t even want to consider Joe being forced to live in another country.
“She has not feelings or emotions when speaking about it,” the insider revealed. “No one has ever made it seem like it was even a possibility that he could be deported.”
Teresa is not the only one in denial. Sources say that Joe also isn’t taking the deportation ruling seriously. Although he might get booted from the country at any time, Joe believes the ruling will be overturned and doesn’t feel any stress about the situation. This is despite the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency recently saying that Joe is in the middle of being removed.
Joe is originally from Italy and ICE fully plans on sending him back at some point before or after his sentence is up. If Joe doesn’t get deported while in jail, he will be handed over to ICE agents once he is released from prison. The only thing that would prevent his deportation is if the original ruling was reversed, which Teresa is working hard to get done.
Joe has been living in the United States since he was a young child. He has never gone through the correct channels to become a citizen and instead choose to live as a permanent resident.
Last season, Teresa Giudice admitted that living in Italy wouldn’t be so bad, though she has refused to talk about the subject ever since.
