If you are here illegally, it doesn't matter how long it has been. Once you are found you will be deported as an illegal alien.

You cannot just "become" legal, you have to go through proper channels. There is no time statute or amnesty on illegal immigrants. You stay illegal until you get caught.

Being here for 10 years honestly means nothing since you were here illegally. You can apply for a green card like any other immigrant, but will have to return to your home country to receive it.
