No. The "unlawfully present" foreign national must voluntarily return to his or her country of origin or be deported and the citizen spouse must apply for their reentry under the USCIS spousal requirements.

No. In most cases it is no longer possible for a foreign national who is unlawfully present within the US to be sponsored for permanent residency or citizenship by a citizen spouse regardless of having a criminal history or not. Any foreign national either legally or illegally within the US is subject to deportation if convicted of a federal or state felony.

I don't understand your question. Marriage fraud to violate immigration law is illegal and a felony. It is illegal to marry someone to make them legal. It is not illegal to marry an illegal immigrant because you love them. It is not illegal for you to immigrate your illegal spouse...assuming that the marriage is legitimate. It is illegal to mar them.

How can an illegal immigrant become legal without marrying a citizen?

There is a misconception that marrying a U.S. citizen will automatically confer citizenship to the foreign spouse that however is not the case. The spouse will be given a different priority classification for obtaining permanent residency and/or citizenship, but the required USCIS procedures must be followed to apply for such status and the person must also qualify under the immigration laws. For example if the person has experienced legal problems such as a criminal felony conviction, marriage will not negate the affect it has on a USCIS decision. Information pertaining to laws governing an illegal foreign national' status can be found on the website of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services,
