I'm no immigration lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that Canadian citizens can visit the United States all they want, regardless of marital status. (After much hunting, I found it at Sheesh! What a mess of a web site.) If genuinely marry (i.e. not for a fradulent purpose, like beating immigration laws) someone who is a legal resident of the United States, that can be an avenue to permanent residency, if you so desire. Your citizenship doesn't change just because you get married.

Once you have been ordered to be deported, nothing you do can revoke that order. Even if you marry a US citizen, you will be deported. You can apply to reenter the US but the chances of that application getting approved is very less. Basically, no.

A person can certainly be deported if they are married illegally in the United States. If there is a wife in another nation, the marriage in the United States is not legal.

A United States passport is required to re-enter the United States if you are a U.S citizen; however they can not deny re-entry to a citizen but if you do not have enough proof you will be detained until they prove you are not and if you are not you will be deported.
