In the wake of the news that Joe Giudice has been released from prison and has since been moved "to a facility in western Pennsylvania which houses immigration detainees," his eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, is sending her dad a message on Instagram. While Joe has since been released from prison after serving a 41-month sentence, The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband is awaiting a decision on an appeal filed last November in connection with a ruling that he would be deported back to Italy following his release from prison.
Teresa Giudice's teen daughter shared a throwback photo of her with her dad, captioning the moment, “Sending you my love and strength today and always. I love you."
Gia has commented on the deportation ruling on Instagram before, back last October, with a heartfelt message about her father.
"My father is no threat to society[;] he is one of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul. He puts everyone else before himself. I know who my father is and I think many of you do too. My father did his time and learned from his mistakes. Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person? And that’s exactly what my father did. He hasn’t felt or looked this good since he was in his 30’s," Joe and Teresa Giudice's eldest daughter wrote. "We have so many plans to do as a family when he gets out. I need my father to be here. My father belongs with us and his entire family. My father came into this country when he was one years old, the United States is the only country he knows, spread the word #bringjoehome."
Joe's attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., confirmed to The Daily Dish in a statement on Thursday (March 14) the latest development in Joe's ongoing legal issues: “Mr. Giudice has finished serving his federal prison sentence and was transferred early this morning from the Bureau of Prisons to a facility in western Pennsylvania which houses immigration detainees," his attorney said in a statement. "His lawyers and his family are hopeful that justice will prevail and Mr. Guidice will return home to his wife and four daughters who love him and miss him.”
