As a US citizen, you can sponsor an alien for U.S. Green Card application for the the immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen, such as your wife.

When can I become a US citizen?

Whenever you either a) have a job offer in the US with a company that is willing to sponsor you. b) have a fiance or spouse that is willing to sponsor you. c) win the green card lottery (bear in mind some countries do not qualify for this lottery). d) have any immediate family ie: sister, mother, etc that is willing to sponsor you. All of these options require a mountain of time consuming paper workand more often than not they have about 50 different visa's for the same thing. It's usually best to look up all of the different visas available through US immigration and see which one fits your situation best. Or ask an immigration lawyer, sometimes the internet explanations get overwhelming and confusing.

What does it mean to sponsor an illegal immigrant?

The question is slightly ambiguous, since technically you cannot sponsor an illegal immigrant. If the immigrant is already in the country illegally, they cannot be sponsored for entry into the country. You can sponsor an immigrant, but there are conditions on someone re-entering the United States who has already been an illegal immigrant. First, sponsoring an immigrant. There is a category of immigration called family sponsorship, whereby the family member of the immigrant (who is already a legal U.S. citizen) can sponsor the immigrant's entry into the country. The family member must submit an Affidavit of Support, which shows that the sponsor will financially support the immigrant. Proof of income must be provided along with the application. This only applies, however, to immigrants who have not yet entered the country illegally. Illegal aliens who wish to re-enter the country legally are generally barred for three years from doing so. There are exceptions to this rule, but generally, any person who has been in the United States illegally for 180 days or more will be barred from re-entry for three years. Aliens will be barred for 10 years if they were illegally in the country for one year or more. These laws surrounding legal and illegal immigration and sponsorship are contained in the updated Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 and the Anti terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996

Why is it legal for you people to take a non-citizen Mexican away from his three American children and leave mother alone with nothing and then you talk about family morale?

I am not for separating families, but there are legal steps to becoming a US resident or citizen. From your philosophy, I would gather that all an illegal immigrant has to do is come to the USA, marry a US-born citizen, have children and, voila!! they are automatically a US citizen. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. I. too. feel sad for the family that is left behind, but that is the risk of illegal immigration. My ancestors had to go through the immigration/naturalization process when they came to the US. I don't think it should be any different or easier for any others.
