    Answered . It's possible, but you need to have a detailed consult with a good immigration lawyer. There are several bars to immigrating that may apply to him, and this needs to be carefully analyzed by a lawyer who has all the facts. There's also a good chance that, if he can immigrate, he will need a waiver of inadmissibility. These are not always granted and applying for them is a complicated matter that you should not attempt without assistance from a qualified attorney.
