Following the news that Joe Giudice will be deported to Italy after he completes his prison sentence, his daughter Gia Giudice shared a touching message about her dad, who reportedly has 30 days to appeal the decision made by a judge in immigration court on October 10.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter posted a throwback photo of her with her dad alongside a lengthy Instagram caption.
"This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad. 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 is currently serving time for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud at Federal Correctional Institution Allenwood in Pennsylvania. His sentence began in March 2016 at the FCI in Fort Dix, New Jersey, and he was transferred at the end of 2017 to the Pennsylvania location.
