I am dating an illegal Mexican and we are talking about getting married Would it be easier to go back to Mexico and get a fiance visa like he was never here or get married here and proceed here?

From my understanding it would be better to get married here in the US. Don't send him back for the fiancee visa because they take about 6 months or more to process before he can come back over. It's better to go ahead and get married. Once married start the process with an Immigration attorney. It'll be easier for you to keep him in the country simply put. His job has done an audit and says they need documents showing he can work here, he is illegal so I think he needs to go back to Mexico and i can file a fiancee visa, but am unsure if we should marry here in united states or start from the beginning

From what I understand you can get married then file the I-130 and they would be able to stay. But you would still have to file certain paper work and it is a LONG process.

If a us citizen marries a Mexican illegal immigrant in the us and has 20 years of deportation can he still get the green card and become a resident of the US?

to my knowledge, if you as an American citizen are LEGALLY married to an illegal, all that you have to do is go to your local immigration office and apply for his residency. it is better if you are married in the u.s. before applying. if you guys married in the u.s. so much the better. make sure that he does not have a criminal record or that is it. if you married outside the u.s. what i would do is to marry again in the u.s. so that immigration will "recognize" said marriage, but yes, as a u.s. citizen, applying for your spouse is one of your privileges and rights for being a u.s. citizen...good luck

If applying for US citizenship as the spouse of an American can you file for an uncontested divorce right after filing your citizenship application or must you wait until after your citizenship oath?
