Much depends on the specifics of how he was "sent back." Consult with an attorney as your husband may be subject to a permanent bar.

An approved I-130 does not allow a beneficiary to remain in the United States while the petition is pending. If your husband was deported or subject to an expedited removal, then he might not be eligible to adjust status in the USA, even with the petition dating back to 1997. Everything depends on all of the specific details of your husband's history of immigration and crimes (if any). You need to consult in person with an experienced immigration attorney and go over all details in order to determine what, if anything, is possible.
