Depending on his age, you can try a special immigrant juvenile petition for court dependents. Otherwise you may wish to consider simply deferred action status.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
You may petition for your foreign national sibling with an I-130 yet for that category the waiting time would be in excess of 12 years for the priority date to mature

How old is your brother? If he's eligible you can file for a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). Once you obtain an order from the state court you can apply for a special immigrant visa on Form I-360 and apply for adjustment of status to get his green card on Form I-485. You must hire an experienced attorney! Do not attempt to do any of this on your own! Good luck
