If you just married for the green card you will automatically get deported. You have to be married 5 to 8 years and show proof of a good marriage in irder to receive the papers just to get the card. When a person marries to receive a green card there is a of paperwork in it to prove that thae amrriage is ligate and not just for the papers. So do beware that you can still be deported if you divorce.

You are Mexican what do you have to do to marry to a us citizen?

If you are already in the United States, the fact that you are a Mexican citizen does not make it any more difficult for you to get married. You will follow the same procedure as anyone else and the laws of the U.S. state in which you are getting married will dictate the requirements. Marrying a U.S. citizen will not, however, automatically change your immigration status. It will create a path to citizenship, but it is by no means automatic. If you are in Mexico and you want to marry an American, you can obtain a civil marriage according to the laws of the Mexican state in which you live. Or, your American fiance(e) can apply for a visa for you to come to the United States for the purpose of getting married.
