You can sponsor him thru employment. In other words, you have to hire them to work for you. I am not sure if you can just bring them under some other type of visa and that only requires you to pay all his/her livings expenses without working for you, but there may be. You better check with the USCIS or an Immigration attorney.

How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant from Mexico so that they may remain or return to the US?

Your question reveals an unconscious bias. You said,= "How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant...." = If you "sponsor" them, they are not an "illegal immigrant." Careful, the way your question is phrased says a lot about you. The very term "illegal immigrant" is insulting to ....migrant workers, especially. Mexican citizens surely don't like the phrase and, by the way, Superman was apparently an "illegal immigrant" and you SURELY wouldn't want to insult HIM.

What does it mean to sponsor an illegal immigrant?

The question is slightly ambiguous, since technically you cannot sponsor an illegal immigrant. If the immigrant is already in the country illegally, they cannot be sponsored for entry into the country. You can sponsor an immigrant, but there are conditions on someone re-entering the United States who has already been an illegal immigrant. First, sponsoring an immigrant. There is a category of immigration called family sponsorship, whereby the family member of the immigrant (who is already a legal U.S. citizen) can sponsor the immigrant's entry into the country. The family member must submit an Affidavit of Support, which shows that the sponsor will financially support the immigrant. Proof of income must be provided along with the application. This only applies, however, to immigrants who have not yet entered the country illegally. Illegal aliens who wish to re-enter the country legally are generally barred for three years from doing so. There are exceptions to this rule, but generally, any person who has been in the United States illegally for 180 days or more will be barred from re-entry for three years. Aliens will be barred for 10 years if they were illegally in the country for one year or more. These laws surrounding legal and illegal immigration and sponsorship are contained in the updated Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 and the Anti terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996

The responsibility of a baptismal sponsor is to be there for the adult or young adult as they begin their walk with Christ. The sponsor is similar to a spiritual mentor in that one will be there to give love and support that person. Hold them accountable when they start to go down the wrong path and encourage them when they are walking in right steps with Christ.
