as of now , his chances are low, he needs to pass CS on first attempt, he and you need to improve your english, pass Step 3, then maybe.

Could be difficult to get into IM, but not impossible, though Peds would be easier in his case. His green card will IMMENSELY help. Now he just needs to pass CS from the first attempt. His chances would be fairly good after that.
