President Donald Trump is currently cracking down on illegal immigration like no other American leader has before. Now, a Hollywood celebrity is learning the hard way that he is not above the law, as he is facing deportation for a crime he just committed.
New York Daily News reported that “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Joe Giudice is in deportation proceedings as he serves a 41 month prison sentence over charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bankruptcy fraud and failure to file tax return. A spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conformed that officials have lodged a detainer and Giudice is in removal proceedings from the United States back to his native Italy.
Though he is scheduled to be released in March of 2019, he could find himself thrown out of the country before then.
Giudice’s lawyer denied that deportation has been decided.
“I can state with absolute certainty that no decision has been made regarding the immigration status of Joe Giudice. The same immigration detainer that was lodged against him in March of 2016 remains in place today, but I want to be absolutely clear about this, no judicial authority has made any decision regarding what will happen with that detainer,” James Leonard Jr. said. “Mr. Giudice has immigration counsel who are and have been working aggressively on his behalf so that he can return home to his wife and four young daughters and we remain optimistic that that is how this will end.”
Giudice is married to Teresa Giudice, who once appeared on Trump’s reality show “Celebrity Apprentice.” If Giudice thought this connection would save him from deportation, however, he is quickly learning that he was dead wrong! In Trump’s America, nobody is above the law!
