Joe Giudice might not face deportation after all. The judge overseeing Joe’s case is reportedly thinking about keeping him stateside and not deporting him back to Italy. While Joe’s deportation remains up in the air, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice does not want to talk about her husband’s future.
Judge Ellington was expected to make a ruling on Joe’s deportation this past Monday. The decision was delayed for unknown reasons.
Joe’s lawyer, Jerard Gonzalez, believes the judge is having a hard time making up his mind because his client’s situation is unique. While Joe is technically a citizen of Italy, his parents moved to the United States when he was one years old and he has lived here ever since.
I've watched two minutes of the #RHONJ premiere and I'm already totally gagged. This is going to be an AMAZING season — and trust me, it starts out with a BANG. @Teresa_Giudice @melissagorga @MargaretJosephs @DoloresCatania @JGSchneid @JenniferAydin @Andy pic.twitter.com/2yCYFAAKSK

“I’ve been here my whole life, I wouldn’t know what to do in any other country,” Joe pleaded with the judge.
According to Radar Online, officials with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are pushing hard to deport Joe, who is serving a sentence of three years for fraud.
Joe has been fighting the threat of deportation for months and he is scheduled to appear in front of the judge on Oct. 10. We can only hope that the Joe’s status will be determined by then, either way.
As far as Teresa is concerned, she has not commented on the latest rumors surrounding Joe’s deportation. The RHONJ star has fought rumors of divorce ever since her husband started his jail sentence and insists that her marriage will survive.

In fact, sources claim that the thought of divorce has not even crossed Teresa’s mind as she waits for her husband to be released. That said, the reality star was spotted meeting with a divorce lawyer earlier this year, so it is not clear what is happening behind the scenes.
Teresa Giudice returns for Season 9 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, November 7 on Bravo.
