    Answered . Can't tell from the little you have shared - we don't even know what his status in this country is. If there were endangerment/aggravated issues or a repeat offense, any possible immigration consequences would be much more serious. If it is a simple DUI and he has a green card, probably not so bad. If undocumented, he can end up in removal proceedings. Contact an immigration attorney ASAP.
