Your husband's options will be clearer after a detailed review of his entire immigration history, and history of any criminal convictions or other negative interactions with law enforcement. Depending on all of the details, if you are a U.S. Citizen and you marry him, he might be eligible to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. If he is granted the waiver, then he could enter the United States without needing to wait 10 years. In order to determine whether he could ask for the waiver, you need to meet with an immigration attorney.
