Joe Giudice Flagged for Deportation

We know RHONJ star Joe Giudice could get out of prision as early as March 2019, but that might just be the beginning of more problems for the Giudice family.

According to RadarOnline, Joe has already been flagged by the United States Department of Homeland Security.

A source at the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement explained there is, “a detainer on him.” Adding, “We have every intent to deport him.”

A source close to the Giudice family says, “Teresa [Giudice] has been scrambling to try to get the deportation waived, and its not happening yet.”

“Immigration consequences of criminal convictions depend on the particular criminal statutes implicated and are very case specific,” explains attorney Sophia Solovyova, who is an expert in immigration law.

“Joe was convicted under a fraud statute,” she explained. “Its a deportable offense, for which waivers are available only in very limited circumstances.”

It makes you wonder if there is anyway if Joe can avoid deportation?

“Whether he is eligible to apply for a waiver of criminal inadmissibility depends on how he obtained his green card,” Solovyova said. “If he applied for his green card while in the United States, he may be eligible. But if he came into the country with an immigrant visa, he would not be eligible.”

“So, in short, he is deportable, but whether he has a case depends on his immigration history, personal circumstances and case law in third circuit,” she said.

What do you think of Joe’s possible deportation?
