The validity of divorces are generally governed by the state you reside in. Generally, for a divorce to be valid the state or court issuing it had to have jurisdiction. If you do not live in Mexico, and were not married in Mexico, then Mexico would have jurisdiction to grant a divorce. Even if it did grant such a divorce, the USCIS would likely not accept it under the circumstances.
