You have a final order so your removal proceedings is closed. But there is still the matter of the deportation order. You may want to seek help from immigration lawyer re this. You can go to Mexico but the question is can you return to the US. From the facts provided I don't think you would be able to return to the US if you leave. An advance parole maybe? Speak with an attorney before you do anything.

First of all, I think your case requires a consultation with a good trial lawyer. Secondly, I think the question whether you should travel is a different question from whether you can reopen your deportation case. Before attempting to reopen a case in immigration court, some considerations you need to make are: what type of relief will now be available to you? Do you now qualify for a visa or some other way to immigrate? Has it been ten years since the order? This sometimes makes it easier. Other questions might involve the general nature of the Office of Chief Counsel in your location - and this would best be answered by a practitioner who has experience in the particular court. As far as leaving the U.S. please do not do so without carefully exploring the bars and other issues. Reform, if it becomes law, may change these consequences as well, but now, leaving the U.S. can trigger severe consequences.
