Is my husband fingerprints still in immigration system?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chicago, IL

My husband try to apply for some policy for illigal immigrants in 2005, he submitted the form and had his fingerprints done also. About a week later, he realized that he did not qualify for the program and he withdrew from it. My question now is that, will the immigration still have his fingerprint in their system or not?
