You should speak with an attorney. He may be asking you to sign a bond for his release.

My colleagues are correct. Letters have little value. Talk to an immigration attorney first.

A letter from a brother's friend is going to have little effect. The person needs an immigration attorney and that attorney should discuss what needs to be in an affidavit. My firm handles immigration matters in NY.
