Default US citizen to marry illegal immigrant from Mexico

Can an illegal immigrant (currently living in the US from Mexico) marry a US citizen (for love) and successfully gain the right to live and work in the United States? What needs to be done in this case?

Thank you.

Not currently--they must have entered legally to begin with even if out of status now.

There may be new legislation eventually that would allow what you propose and more.

Can an illegal alien become a citizen if they find out their estranged father was an American? What would be needed to prove it? Thanks.

Have the U.S. Citizen consult an immigration attorney in the U.S. If the illegal immigrant does not have a record of being deported or arrested for illegal re-entry I see no reason why they could not return to Mexico and either have the U.S. Citizen bring them over on a fiance visa or marry in Mexico and have the U.S. Citizen petition to have them come to the U.S. legally.
