I left my country on F1 visa in December 2004 and claimed asylum at the port of entry in Atlanta. I was detained by INS and my asylum was approved by the asylum officer and moved to the immigration court. I was detained for 8 motnhs after which I was given a hearing befoer the IJ. As i did not have any lawyer to represent me, I withdrew my asylum application before the Ij. The INS issued me an I-294 stating that I was ineligible to enter the US for a period of 10 years and deported me back to my coutnry of origin(INDIA). Now I would like to go back to the US on a H1-B. I went to school in the US and have a clean record except for the deportation record. Will I be eligible to apply for a waiver and reenter the US legally on a h1-b/
Your advise would be very valuable to me.
