Get him a fiance visa. Then when he enters with that visa marry him within 90 days. If you go directly to the USCIS, tell them that your fiance is still in Mexico and not already in the U.S. You may have to prove with tangible evidence of how you met each other though: phone bills, letters, plane tickets to Mexico, etc. But so far that's the best way to marry an illegal immigrant so that you do not run into problems later trying to get him his green card.
