Hello. Yes, you can help process your boyfriend if you marry. There is a special process for illegals who are married to US citizens. It is called Parole in Place. I have even recently processed and got a client their green card in less than 6 months. Feel free to contact me directly for more information. I will also need to know more about his entries to the US, marriage plans, arrests, your time in the military, etc. Feel free to call or email. 858-874-0711  harun@ksvisalaw.com

No, it would not be possible to legalize his status even if you are married, even if you are in the military, even if you are a US citizen, if your boyfriend entered the US unlawfully.   It may change with changes in the law, but for the time being, it is not possible.
