Yes, you can. The process will depend on if he is in the U.S. or still abroad in his home country. Regardless, you can file a fiance visa now to bring him or an immigrant petition once you marry. Is he in the US now? If so, you can file for his Adjustment of Status despite his pending I-130 via his sister.
