I believe that you would find it difficult to have your father come to the U. S. Insofar as the I-130 petition is concerned, U.S.C.I.S. would approve it as long as the relationship can be proved, but he would have to appear for an interview before the American consulate or embassy. The first question would be whether he understands any of the assertions that he is making on the immigrant visa application. Without being able to understand whether he falls under any of the bars such as for crime or terrorism, it would be difficult for a consular officer to pass him on the application. The second question is whether he would be inadmissible because of his condition. The condition is not a ground of inadmissibility, but there is a problem with the financials. Unless you have very high financial resources or a financial cosponsor with such under which you could assure the U. S. government that he would not become a public charge, the visa application would fail on that account.
