The citizen spouse has no recourse to the action as US Immigration laws no longer allow a citizen spouse to apply for residency for an illegal immigrant spouse. The Mexican national will have to leave the US and file under the required USCIS regulations for reentry.

How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant from Mexico so that they may remain or return to the US?

Your question reveals an unconscious bias. You said,= "How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant...." = If you "sponsor" them, they are not an "illegal immigrant." Careful, the way your question is phrased says a lot about you. The very term "illegal immigrant" is insulting to ....migrant workers, especially. Mexican citizens surely don't like the phrase and, by the way, Superman was apparently an "illegal immigrant" and you SURELY wouldn't want to insult HIM.

If a US citizen marries a Mexican illegal immigrant in Mexico who has been deported twice and lived in the US under a false identity can he move back to the US with his spouse and become a US citizen?

Not until he/she gets a green card or at least permission by the USCIS, based on your marriage in Mexico. Now about the name jumble: It would be in his/her favor that he/she did not use his/her real name in the USA while illegal, specially since he/she has been deported at least once. That is if he/she never used his/her real name while illegally in the USA, so as far as the INS is concerned, he/she was never here (the USA). That said, I hope that he/she used his/her real name when she married you in Mexico. I think you know why. Now, go to the USCIS or an immigration attorney and file the paperwork to bring you foreing husband/wife to the USA. Actually, it's OK if he/she (the immigrant) used his/her real name while illegally in the U.S. As long as he/she did not give his/her real name when deported. The reason for this is the possible 3 to 10-year ban for entering the country illegally AND being deported at least once.

How can a US citizen become legal in Mexico if they have been living for 2 yrs as an illegal immigrant in Mexico?

In 2011 Mexico decriminalized illegal immigration, thus becoming an administrative infraction punishable with a fine that stays around US$500. Mexico also recognizes dual citizenship, so all you have to do is to define your status, pay the corresponding fine and begin the process to acquire legal residence through the FM2 (immigrant) process. You should however, consult a legal advisor.
