You can sponsor him for a green card, get him an I-601A unlawful presence waiver if required, and he can get a green card at the US Consulate in CDJ.
Otherwise, he may be eligible for asylum or cancellation removal.
Carl Shusterman (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) has 40+ years of experience practicing immigration law. He is a Certified Specialist in Immigration Law who has testified before the U.S. Senate Immigration Subcommittee as an expert witness. He was featured in the February 2018 issue of SuperLawyers magazine. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
If he was parolled into the U.S., you can file a petition for alien relative and he can file for adjustment of 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.
