Why are there some Vietnamese got deported to Vietnam and some still living in the U.S on limbo?

San Diego, CA |

I know a few peoples already deported back to Vietnam. My brother came to the u.s in 2003 and the immigration judge gave him final order of deportation in 2006 for his aggravated felony conviction when he was 19. He currently on limbo, he is working raising a kid. Is there any chances he can avoid deportation. Why are some of the peoples already deported back home and my brother still have his chance to stay here?
