Above the Law reports that Teresa and Joe Giudice, famous for their roles on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, have entered guilty pleas in their federal bank fraud case. The problem for Joe oblem for Joe is that he is not a U.S. citizen. Under Immigration & Nationality Act § 101(a)(43)(M)(i)), a fraud conviction causing more than $10,000 in damages (the damages alleged here exceed $1 million) is an "aggravated felony." This makes Joe immediately removable after his sentence is served.
