Is it true that this program is eliminated and I have few days to file I-130?
No. Nothing of the sort is true. They are talking about eliminating the siblings category in the immigration bill. But nothing has passed yet. Even if and when it does, they will give certain period For all the remaining siblings petitions to be filed, before a "sunset date" when the entire category would expire. That would not affect those cases that are already in the "pipeline", those will remain unaffected and will be processed, perhaps even faster than now.
The sibling category is eliminated in the current immigration reform bill that is before the house. Should that bill become law you will not be able to file for your brother. Whether the legislation will actually pass one can only speculate. However, it would be a good idea to file the I-130 now.
