Your chances are very slim. However, if you voluntarily depart the US it will be much easier for you to come back, otherwise you will trigger the 10 year bar.

Virtually nil, i.e., none (in my opinion) if you're now on the deportation list. M.E.

So you've been ordered deported already? It wasn't clear. Apart from that, are you afraid to return to your country? You "stole a visa," and this is typical. While asylum might be out of the question, "Withholding" and "CAT" might both be possibilities, but you'd have to be in proceedings to get them. If you've already been ordered deported, you'd have to reopen your case first. "It's always smart to get a second opinion."
