Teresa Giudice‘s husband will be transferred out of the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix, New Jersey, to the prison in Allenwood, Pennsylvania, according to documented filed by the U.S. Attorney and obtained by The Blast.
Joe, 45, made the request because he would like placement in a residential drug and abuse program but claims he was denied “as a result of a detainer place by Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” according to the documents. (He was born in Italy and could be deported after he serves his time.)
According to the documents, dated Wednesday, Joe will be transferred “soon,” and once in Allenwood, “will be able to have a hearing on his immigration status.”
