    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You're going to need to consult with a qualified immigration lawyer - and you should really be focused on whether you're going to be able to remain in the country or literally be banished from the kingdom rather than whether you can tempoarily get work authorization. You can search for a lawyer (and narrow your search for removal/deportation defense) at www.ailalawyer.org. Good luck to you.
