Asked about 1 year ago - Sterling Heights, MI

i entered the U.S from Canada in 2006 on an expired Pakistanti passport. We were on asylum there, then we were deported to the U.S. Here we have appealed our denied refugee status--its still under process. I want to apply a work permit and social security for my 15 year old daughter. Need advice on how this could be done
