The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband, 46, may never go home to his four children again, as ICE officials revealed exclusively to Radar that they plan on detaining him immediately after he has completed his three-year prison sentence on March 14.
"ICE expects the Bureau of Prisons Allenwood Low Federal Correctional Institution to honor our detainer, and Mr. Guidice will be taken into ICE custody," an official told Radar.
As Radar was very first to report, a judge ruled in October Joe must be deported to his native Italy for his multiple fraud-related crimes.
Joe's legal team fought the decision the following month, and his appeal is currently pending.
Though he technically completes his sentence in two weeks, he will promptly be handed over to immigration officials, and placed in a detention center.
If he doesn't win his appeal, he'll be whisked away to Italy.
During his October court hearing, Joe begged the judge to allow him to stay in the U.S.
“I’ve been here my whole life, I wouldn’t know what to do in any other country,” he told the court via teleconference. “I want to stay here.”
“I get no joy in telling a family this news,” Judge Ellington responded. “Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”
Sources told Radar that Teresa will not accompany her husband overseas — and she’s already consulted with a divorce lawyer.
