It was a close call for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star who submitted the appeal on the final day before it was due.
According to a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, “records show that its appellate component, the Board of Immigration Appeals, received an appeal today, Nov. 9, 2018, pertaining to Giuseppe Giudice’s Oct. 10, 2018, removal order.”
As Radar exclusively reported, Giudice, 46, was ordered deported by Immigration Judge John Ellington last month after he determined the reality stars’ crimes were considered an aggravated felony.
In top secret DOJ documents obtained exclusively by Radar, Judge Ellington explained in a 13 page written decision: “The Court finds that the underlying offenses for Respondent’s conspiracy conviction, mail and wire fraud…are aggravated felonies…as both convictions contain elements that necessarily entail fraudulent or deceitful conduct,” the judge wrote in papers filed on October 10.
“In addition, Giudice’s crimes “constitute morally turpitudinous behavior,” because he “failed to pay his taxes for the purpose of misleading or concealing,” Ellington said.
Giudice pleaded with the judge to reconsider but Judge Ellington insisted his decision was purely based on the law.
“I don’t understand how I can be deported on this case,” Giudice stammered as he heard the decision. “If you will, I’ll tell you my side. I shouldn’t even be here right now.”
“I get no joy in telling a family this news,” Judge Ellington responded. “Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”
