If an illegal alien enters into a same-sex domestic partnership is that person in danger of being exposed and deported more than before by entering a domestic partnership?

No. A same-sex domestic partnership, civil union or marriage cannot help an alien obtain permanent residency because the US federal government does not recognize same-sex marriage. If the foreigner were on a tourist visa, then entering into a domestic partnership (civil union or marriage) would be a violation of the visa. Since the question refers to a person lacking legal status, the answer would be no. His presence is no more or less illegal because of the domestic partnership. If he is off the radar, then the dangers of being deported all relate to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or breaking the law. These dangers are the same before and after the domestic partnership registration.
