You could have problems re-entering the country, even with advance parole. You should consult with an experienced attorney to review all the details of your earlier adventures with immigration and the immigration court. The attorney will be able to advise you.

I agree with Mr. Murphy ... travel out of the US is not a good idea.

I have no Idea what you mean when you refer to a 'pardon letter' .... unless it is a 'real' pardon and is signed by the Governor or the President of the United States ... there is no such letter that will have any value.
