He will not be able to get resident status (green card) through marriage to a US citizen. His visa does not allow him to adjust status in the US.

He would have to go back to his home country to apply for an immigrant visa based on the marriage and he would trigger a 10 year bar to coming back.

He should wait to see if we get new immigration laws passed that will allow him to file in the US so he doesn't have the bar.
