The best thing you can do is hire an immigration attorney with some criminal experience who can access your friend's CADOJ and FBI records. Depending on the Visa, it may still be within the discretion of the border officials to decide whether or not to let your friend enter the U.S.

I agree. If his visa has already been cancelled he will need to re-apply at the consulate and demonstrate curernt eligibility.
