At this time no one can speculate what will be included in the proposed comprehensive immigration reform. Your guess is as good as mine. While in removal proceedings did you get the help of an immigration lawyer? Since you were here for more than 10 years, I believe you could have applied for cancellation of removal. Please consult with an immigration lawyer to see if your case could be reopened for any reason.
