By prosecute you mean sue right because only attorneys and judges can prosecute. Anyway, you file a suit for divorce and the reason would be for whatever you think the fraud is. This is best for a attorney to word so you dont miss anything. When the matter refers to a fraudlent marriage connected with Immigration issues the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement have jurisdiction.

Where should you report marriage fraud?

If you are the victim of marriage fraud (e.g., you discover that your husband was already married to someone else before you married him), then you can ask the local district attorney's office to prosecute him for the crime of bigamy, and you can also file a civil suit for damages and divorce.If you have evidence of someone else's marriage fraud, then you may be able to convince the local district attorney (or the equivalent in your jurisdiction) to prosecute.If you have evidence of marriage fraud with respect to immigration status, then you could froward that evidence to your local office of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), but it is not guaranteed that they will act on your tip.If you merely suspect that someone else is committing marriage fraud, then reporting it will likely have no effect, since the government is not motivated to investigate and locate evidence on their own, unless you show that the government is being defrauded and an ineligible person is receiving a monthly benefit, such as Social Security or a military pension. In that case, if you report the fraud to the local office of the government agency that administers that entitlement benefit, they presumably, would investigate the matter in order to stop the payments and recoup money already paid out on a fraudulent claim.

Can you get married if you are illegal to a us citizen so you can get a job and pay taxes?

Sure you can if you both agree and as long as it is a legal marriage and not just to get a legal status. If the marriage is a sham the Government will find out and will prosecute both of you for fraud. You don't want to get into this mess. The investigators will check on you from time to time and interview friends, neighbors, and family to find out if the marriage is real or not so be careful.
