I am applying for the residence of my parents. While filling the paperwork there is a questions that asks for the current address of one of my brothers; he is ilegal in the US, so he is afraid to put his US address and he asked to put a Mexican address, but i do not know if this will have consequences on the approval of my parents residence status.
Rule #1: don't lie to the government--they aren't very forgiving. The fact that your brother is in the US should not impact your parents' case. Putting an incorrect address on the form will not change the fact that your brother is unlawfully in the U.S.
You might consider consulting with an immigration attorney to make sure there are no other issues, and/or to see what can be done about your brother's case.
Yes, the government can deny benefit if finds out about false information on application. As a practical matter it is not a secret that there are many folks in US without documentation however the government does not have policies or even resources to track everyone down unless there are some compelling grounds for it like arrest warrants or fugitive warrants. good luck
