You should have your boyfriend ask if you eligible for any benefits. Regarding your immigration status, if you entered illegally there are procedures that allow for USICS to do a parole in place to allow you to apply for legal residency in the United States. Parole in place procedures may differ from district to district. Consult a local experienced immigration attorney to properly advice you and to inform you of the local parole in place procedure. Good luck.
I agree with my colleague.
