-Joe Giudice, husband of Real Housewives of NJ star Teresa Giudice, has been released from prison following a 41 month sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. He was transferred to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement upon release.
-Giudice was born in Saronno, Italy and moved to the U.S. with his family when he was 1, but never became a citizen. ICE has had a detainer for his deportation since he was first locked up in 2016.
-In October, a judge ruled that Giudice should be deported to Italy upon completion of his sentence. In November Giudice appealed that decision.
-Teresa has said she would separate from Joe if the deportation appeal is not successful, and that she will not be moving her family to Italy to be with her husband.
