According to a report from People.com, Joe Giudice recently claimed that ICE detention officers asked for a selfie with him following his release from their facility. In a new interview with Andy Cohen, the reality star stated that immigration officers were taking photos with him as he was being escorted to Italy.
The 49-year-old host said to Cohen that he had two immigration officers on each side of him taking selfies on their phone during their entire interaction. The reality star added that he and the rest of the ICE officials departed from a Washington DC airport.
The reality star appeared to joke that there was another person who was carrying a gun. “You know, I’m a very dangerous guy,” the reality star remarked. Moreover, Joe claims ICE officers began telling him about all of the great places to stay in while visiting Italy.
Regarding what his actual experience was like being detained by ICE officials, the reality star claims they wanted to put handcuffs on him, but he told them he refused to do so.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star was living in custody with ICE at the Clinton County Correctional Center in PA following his departure from prison back in March. The 49-year-old and his 47-year-old have been living apart since Joe first started his prison sentence in March of 2016 on wire and mail fraud.
Teresa, on the other hand, had a much smaller sentence, but still served 11 months in jail for similar crimes. She was later released on the 23rd of December, 2015. Despite the fact Joe has lived in the United States since he was a little boy, he never got his hands on American citizenship.
