It might help to review that mysterious letter that gave you a free stay in the country for a one year period, which you, unlike anyone else in deportation proceedings received from the judge.

My point is, your daughter really needs to take all your immigration history to an immigration attorney for a review or you might be setting yourself up for quite a disappointment.
