      I would suggest that your return to your home country and apply for the necessary visa to come here legally.
      There is no short cut. There are at the moment several million people who have applied legally and are waiting their turn. Why should you have priority over those doing it properly.

        Sorry for putting it in a harsh way: an expired passport would be the least of the worries of an illegal alien. It will most likely complicate things since BCIS really doesn't like people who can not be deported immediatly => means, longer wait in jail untill a new passport is being issued.

        There is no way for an illegal alien to become a citizen of the U.S. You must accomplish to adjust your status to that of legal permanent resident first. Then only after that and fullfilling a whole bunch of other requirements such as having filed properly tax returns, being properly present, being a person of good moral character, proving that you're efficient in your knowledge of the English language, American history and civics etc.) and a residency requirement of 5 yrs. may you apply for naturalization which takes another year or so.

        There are different ways to adjust your status, but as far as I know if you entered the U.S. uninspected (illegal entry with illegal stay) there is no route to legalize your stay here and you'd need to be removed (by BCIS or by yourself).

          Yeah... but,

          If he has a visa, he's is not ILLEGAL...
          he's just out of status, even tho they only way to get legal it would be for him/her to get married to a United States Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident. And go thru the WHOLE process... it will take long, but its the fastest way to do it.

          If someone entered the country ILLEGALY (meaning no passport / visa / inspection) there is no way right now to get back in track, not even geting married to a USC.

          Im also from mexico, and all the bull**** we heard on our countrys about "get married and everything would be ok" is just craaaap.

          Good luck
