If you did not enter with inspection, or if you were not paroled, you are not eligible for adjustment of status, at first glance, under the Cuban Adjustment Act. You may be eligible to apply for asylum, and if you are in removal proceedings, this may be an important remedy for you. One issue is going to be that the general rule is that an application for asylum must be filed within one year of the applicant's last entry into the U.S., keep this in mind because absent a very good reason, you may not be allowed to apply if you allow more than a year to pass before you file your application.
