Yes, your US citizen brother can petition for you. The amount of time it takes to process your immigrant visa will depend on the country you are from.

Your brother is allowed to sponsor you by filing the I-130 petition for you with DHS. It is currently taking about ten years under the current quota numbers for adult siblings of US citizens to then reach eligibility for the green card.
