It is possible, but he will have to go before the Immigration Judge (IJ) if ICE or CBP do not get him first. Once ordered removed, you can be removed again without appearing before an IJ. I suppose he request a credible fear of persecution interview if he is nabbed. If he can show that someone will certainly kill him if he went back to his country and that he cannot move to a different part of the country to stay safe (or a different readily available country, other than the US) and/or that his government is unable or unwilling to protect him, then I say he should apply for asylum. My guess is that he will not get asylum but in removal proceedings he may be able to get "Withholding of Removal" or Withholding of Removal under the Convention Against Torture" and or some other esoteric relief of that kind. Of course, the question that comes to mind is why didn't he present a case for any of those when he was last before the Immigration Judge? Some attorney should be getting a call from him right about now. It's a stretch but well worth a try if his life is at stake. Good luck!
