Does an Australian citizen marrying a female US Citizen in the US gain dual citizenship?

No. Marriage to a US citizen does not automatically confer US citizenship. If the Australian citizen later becomes a US citizen through the naturalization process, technically the naturalization oath contains a renunciation of foreign citizenship. However, it's up to the foreign country whether they consider that renunciation binding or not. If Australia does not, then the person would be a dual US/Australian citizen. To the US, it doesn't matter either way; the US doesn't "recognize" dual citizenship in the sense that it's regarded as irrelevant: if you're a US citizen, you're a US citizen, and the fact that you may also be a citizen of somewhere else doesn't confer upon you any special rights or obligations as far as the US is concerned. You have to pay (or at least file) US income tax, you have the same Selective Service obligations as any other citizen of your age and sex, and so forth, and you can't get out of it by claiming you're a citizen of some other country (well, you possibly could by leaving the US, going to a US embassy in another country, and officially renouncing your US citizenship, but then you wouldn't be a dual citizen any more).

A foreign national who is in the US illegally is not eligible for permanent residence status nor citizenship even if he or she is allowed to marry a US citizen.

The exceptions to the new immigration laws are if the person in question qualifies as an refugee or asylee.

If a US citizen is married to an illegal immigrant and they have two US born children can she obtain legal status or is she subject to deportation and would the children affect the decision?

If your already married she's already legal! * An immigrant legal or illegal does not become a US citizen by marrying a US citizen. The female immigrant who is in the US illegal can still be deported under US immigration laws. The issue of her being married to a citizen and having children may or may not be to her advantage. If she is taken into custody she will be given the chance to appeal any deportation issues, but there can be no guarantee of the outcome. The best option is for her to consult an attorney who is knowledgeable in immigration law before taking any other action.
