Joe Giudice was heartbroken after his final appeal for deportation was denied.

“My final appeal for the deportation has been turned down,” he wrote in the caption.

After his appeal was denied, Joe spoke with The Hollywood Gossip. In his interview, Joe didn’t hide the pain he was feeling because he could no longer visit his four daughters in the U.S.

“As I proceeded with caution, hoping to win the judge’s sympathy. I was hoping to come home to my girls. Today, According to U.S immigration I was told I will never step foot in America again,” he said.

“My appeal was denied. The dreadful words no one wants to hear, especially now. I always feel I belong in the United States with my family, not in Italy.”
