No, when you filled out the visa waiver form on the back, you agreed to not being able to adjust your status as a part of the visa waiver program.

What is a visa waiver?

First of all, the term "waiver" comes up in Immigration law more than once and, in more than one case the term is related to a visa. Most commonly, "visa waiver" and "waiver of inadmissibility." There is a difference between a visa waiver and a waiver of inadmissibility. A visa waiver applies when a qualifying alien comes to the United States without formally applying for a waiver at a US consulate.

If you entered the U.S. through the Visa Waiver Program can you marry a U.S. citizen and apply to adjust your status without leaving the States?

Yes, but it must be spontaneous, not planned at the time you entered. And a genuine marriage, but if you are a visa waiver overstay (meaning you over staid the 90 day period of authorized stay that the visa waiver permits), then you can't. Unless you hold a 245i (an act that was in affect--now closed-- in 2001), which allowed anyone to apply for status while being in the country regardless of any status (undocumented, visa overstays, etc).If you going to do it with a visa waiver, you do have to prove the marriage is real because it is very suspicious that in 90 days you fall in love and are about to get married--immigration will put you under a microscope. If you have been in a relationship with someone in US for couple of months (either long distance or with sporadic visits to US), the best way to do this then is by petitioning a finance visa. This petitions should be done while you are outside the country. The visa is given pretty fast. Once you get to the US, you have like 60 days to get married. (usually 45 to 60 days after filing).

You have to apply for a waiver/pardon since you have a deportation record. If you are accepted that waiver/pardon, then you can apply for a visa.
