Teresa Giudice and daughters post about Joe Giudice’s planned deportation

CNN  — 

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is dealing with her husband’s pending deportation.

Joe Giudice, who also appeared on the Bravo reality series, is scheduled to be released from prison in 2019 and is reportedly to be sent back to his native Italy.

Giudice began serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March 2016, months after his wife was released for the same case after serving 15 months.

On Sunday, Teresa Giudice posted an image on Instagram that depicts the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of immigration, covering her face with her hands.

The reality star captioned the photo using praying hands emojis.

Her husband came to this country as a baby. He has said he learned much later in life that he is not a US citizen.

The couple, who married in 1999, share four daughters – Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9.

On Monday, Teresa Giudice posted a photo on Instagram of her and her oldest touring Rutgers University in their home state.

“Taking it one day at a time, with my beautiful Gia checking out @rutgersu,” Giudice wrote in the caption.

Gia and her sister Milania posted on Instagram about their dad.

“I need my father to be here. My father belongs with us and his entire family,” Gia wrote in the caption of a photo showing her much younger with her dad. “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.”

Milania wrote “We aren’t done fighting dad.”

“I can’t believe this is happening. I can’t imagine another day without you,” she wrote. “We are gonna do everything we can to fight this daddy!! I love you with all my heart buddy.”
