Re: immigration

If he is a green card holder, then he should be able to apply for them. However, they will have to wait outside of the United States while the application is pending. Similarly, if he does not pay his taxes, he will have a hard time proving that he can support them when they can get their green cards to travel to the US. He should consult with an attorney to discuss the requirements and time frame for sponsoring his family.

Please be advised that this is not legal advice, I'm not your attorney, and this is just a place to start in deciding what to ask your lawyer.
