    Answered . PROVIDED you did not end up in removal proceedings where you would have "dropped" your case without telling the court, that is the court granting your VD request, and provided further that you did not overstay your welcome in the USA beyond 180 days, and provided further that the asylum application was not deliberately fabricated and finally provided that the consulate would be satisfied that you will be coming back to your country after the visit in the USA, you may be allowed to enter.
