Giudice will reportedly stay in custody as he awaits his immigration proceedings.
Joe Giudice has been transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody after he was released from prison.
In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, ICE officials confirmed that the agency has custody of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star after he finished serving his 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud at FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania.
James Leonard Jr., an attorney for Giudice's wife Teresa told Fox News Thursday, "His lawyers and his family are hopeful that justice will prevail and Mr. Guidice will return home to his wife and four daughters who love him and miss him.”
"As standard practice, ICE, through its Criminal Alien Program (CAP) works with the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to identify foreign-born nationals who are amenable to removal," the statement continued. "These aliens are placed in removal proceedings while serving their criminal sentences in order to reduce ICE detention costs and expedite removals once BOP transfers are completed."
