Leonard Jr. told PEOPLE that Joe called Teresa and Gia from the European-bound plane. “He is en route to Italy right now. He spoke to Teresa and Gia from the plane and he is extremely happy to be released, more than words can describe,” Leonard said. Leonard added that they will continue to appeal Joe’s deportation order while he is in Italy: “We are still fighting and it is his desire to return home to the United States to be reunited with his family.” Later in the day on Friday, after speaking with her husband, Teresa shared a photo of the Statue of Liberty crying with her face in her hands, captioning the post with a string of praying hand emojis. Until Friday, Joe was being held at the Clinton County Correctional Center in Pennsylvania, where he was sent after serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. He was released last March, and an immigration court ruled to deport Joe last October. Joe originally requested to be released from the correctional center to his home with Teresa and their kids in New Jersey, but that request was denied. He followed up with a petition filed in September to be released to Italy, which was granted earlier this month.
