We have a family friend who we recently found out is here illegally. He's a great guy, and we're wondering if bail is possible.

It all depends upon why he is in jail and whether there is an immigration hold by ICE. With an ICE hold he is held without bond until his immigration hearing probably in El Paso Texas. If he is in jail on another matter and ICE has not put a detainer on him for wrongful entry in the US, then you should post bond as quickly as possible before ICE finds out.
The jail should be able to tell you what is holding him and how much the bond is.
It is called bond and it is often available, but not in all cases. You should talk to an immigration attorney.
