That is good then because it means you did not accumulate any unlawful presence so would not need a waiver for that purpose if you do qualify for some visa to return to the U.S.

So basically i have no benefit whatsoever in my time spent inside of the US towards being able to reenter legally, id have to apply for some type of visa which would most likely be declined due to my lack of expertise skills or education? I already had attempted to enter the US illegally last December and was caught and deported by the CBP so i really don't know what to do here i would love to enter the country i love legally but it seems i have no options to do so. Is there anything i could do legally or not? what do you think?

Since you were caught and deported this will make any visa much more difficult. If you want a consultation on your options, then call to schedule this. I would suggest getting some skills, start a business there and after you operate it successfully for a year or so there may be an option to set up a branch in the U.S. Or get more schooling and then figure it out.

Thanks for the information, I am really grateful. Situations like these is what leads law abiding illegal immigrants to resort to illegal activity to go back to the land of the free.
