No. If police get called, you go to jail. Criminal law does not depend on the nationality or the status of the victim.

What happens if you abandon your illegal immigrant spouse?

Since marriage to a US citizen confers US citizenship upon the spouse, it is not clear how your spouse is an illegal immigrant unless you are also an illegal immigrant (not that you actually said that either of you are living in the US, but that seems to be the most likely interpretation). I also don't know why you are abandoning your spouse instead of getting a divorce. Nothing will necessarily happen; it depends upon what action the abandoned spouse may choose to take. If you are sued, then there could be various consequences depending upon the outcome of the suit.

Is it illegal to marry another man here in US even if you don't have residency card?

This is a strangely worded question. It sounds like you are asking if it's illegal for one man to marry another man if the first man doesn't have a "green card". The answer is- it depends on the state. Same sex marriage is legal in only a few states, like New York, Massachusetts, and Iowa. In all other states it's illegal. If you were asking if it's illegal to marry an "illegal immigrant"- no, it is not. However, marrying an illegal immigrant has its risks... the immigrant spouse runs the risk of being arrested and deported, meaning your new spouse would be jailed for a while and eventually sent back to their home country.

How can an illegal immigrant become a US citizen?

A foreign national who is unlawfully present within the US cannot apply for permanent residency or citizenship unless her or she qualifies as a refugee or asylee.

All foreign nationals unlawfully present within the US are now subject to deportation with the exception of the aforementioned circumstances.

Where can a US citizen marry an illegal immigrant in the US without the immigrant having ID?

I don't know where you can marry someone without ID. But, you need to think before marrying an illegal. IF you do marry and IF your spouse is discovered, the penalty is deportation. Are you ready for that? IF you have had children, are you ready for them to lose a parent? Are you willing to chance becoming a single parent? If you truly love this person, the best thing you can do is help them become a citizen or at least a resident alien. Then you can marry without fear and worry. Life is hard enough. Why knowingly create more difficulty for yourself?

Why would an illegal immigrant want to get married to a us citizen and then move with her back to where he was from?
