Milania Giudice, 14, Asks Trump to Stop Her Father’s Deportation: ‘We Will Never Stop Fighting’
"I need you home daddy," Teresa and Joe Giudice's daughter wrote in an emotional message
Milania Giudice is doing everything in her power to stop her father Joe Giudice from being deported.
“We will never stop fighting for you daddy. It’s not the same without you. I miss you terribly. I wouldn’t be the person I am today with out [sic] you. I wouldn’t know how to stay strong. I need you home daddy. All I want is to be a family again. I love you endlessy [sic] buddy💓💓,” she wrote, adding the hashtag “Free Joe Giudice” and tagging Trump in the message.
Along with the sweet message, the teenager also shared a throwback photo of herself hugging Joe.
Trump has yet to publicly respond to the message.
Milania’s 18-year-old sister Gia, who is the eldest daughter of Joe and wife Teresa Giudice, has also reached out to Trump online.
On Friday, the couple’s eldest daughter re-posted an impassioned plea for the president to pardon her father on Instagram.
On Thursday, it was revealed that Joe could be one step closer to deportation as his appeal against the decision to deport him was denied.
“We are extremely disappointed that the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied Mr. Giudice’s appeal,” James J. Leonard Jr., the Giudice family attorney, told PEOPLE in a statement. “We have filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will continue to fight to keep Mr. Giudice in the United States, the only country he knows, and reunite him with his wife and four daughters.”
The Board of Immigration Appeals’ April 6 decision leaves Joe’s future up in the air.
Following the news, Teresa, 46, also shared a family photo to social media.
“Joe with the girls decorating eggs, days like this I love having photos,” she captioned a sweet throwback photo of her daughters Gabriella now 15, Audriana, 10, and Milania cuddling up to Joe, 46, showing off their painted eggs.
Even though Joe has lived in the United States since he was a child, he never obtained American citizenship, and immigrants can be deported if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude” or an “aggravated felony,” according to U.S. law.
Joe and Teresa were indicted in 2013 when they were accused of hiding their fortune in a bankruptcy filing. Joe was also accused of failing to file tax returns between 2004 and 2008.
Teresa was released from federal prison in 2015 after serving 11 months of a 15-month sentence for fraud. Joe was released after he completed a 41-month prison sentence in March for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
Since he was released from prison in March, Giudice has been awaiting his fate at a facility in western Pennsylvania which houses immigration detainees.
