Yes only after marriage and paper work has been completed. Usually takes about 6 months to become a citizen of another country.

An illegal alien cannot legally be, or reside, in the United States; much less hold political office.

Under the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside". Therefore, a child born in the United States, is a U.S. citizen by birth, regardless of whether the parents are here legally, illegally, or as visitors. This is known as Jus Soli, and a U.S. citizen may always enter, reside in, or leave the United States. The fact that a child is a U.S. citizen does not, however, give the parents any claim to U.S. citizenship that they did not have before. Under current law, the child may petition for a visa for a parent, when the child turns 21. That visa may be for a visit or as an immigrant, and has some preference over the application of an unrelated immigrant, but the fact that the child has citizenship never automatically gives the parent a right to come to the U.S. or to become a U.S. citizen.

If you marry an illegal immigrate, he or she will automatically become a citizen of the nation you reside in. This, of course, depends on if you are a birth or naturalized citizen of your respective country. If you are only a resident alien, both of you will have to apply for citizenship status in the country.
