A US citizen can sponsor his sibling but the wait time is very long. Siblings are not considered immediate relatives like spouses, parents and children. You wouldnt be able to petition him anyway, as he is not youir brother-that would have to be done by your wife, but as I said the wait time is very long. To determine the wait time, go to the State Dept. web site to see what applications are currently being processed from the Phillipines and it will tell you when those i-130's were filed. Good luck.
