Teresa & Joe Giudice's Daughter Milania, 12, Says She Is 'Heartbroken' Over Dad's Deportation
“My dad, who is the best dad in the world, needs to come home,” the couple's daughter wrote in an emotional Instagram post.
Less than a week after a judge ordered that Joe will be deported to his native Italy at the end of his prison sentence, Milania, 12, penned an emotional note praising her father, whom she describes as “the best dad in the world.”
“My dad, who is the best dad in the world, needs to come home,” she wrote. “We aren’t done fighting dad. I can’t believe this is happening. I can’t imagine another day without you.”
“We are gonna do everything we can to fight this daddy!! I love you with all my heart buddy,” she continued, adding multiple heart emojis as well as “#heartbroken.”
Alongside her sweet message, Milania shared two father-daughter portraits of the pair smiling together.
Commenting on the post, Teresa let her daughter know how much she appreciated her supportive words.
“I love you,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey star wrote, adding a heart-eyed emoji.
Joe is currently serving out a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud that began in March 2016. He is set to be released in 2019. His wife served a little over 11 months in prison for the same crimes and was released on Dec. 23, 2015.
An immigration court ruled on Wednesday that Joe, who emigrated to America as a child but never obtained citizenship, will be deported to his home country of Italy upon his release.
According to U.S. law, immigrants can be deported from the U.S. if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude” or an “aggravated felony.”
Joe has 30 days to appeal the court’s decision.
