Since you are a US citizen, he will be able to apply for permanent residency. Regarding working under another social security number, the issue is being seriously investigated by several states and criminal charges may be filed. You should hire an immigration attorney that does criminal work too. Let us know if you need our help.

A good immigration attorney shouldn't have a problem getting his case approved. For example, I charge $1,500 for this type of case, excluding costs, expenses, and filing fees. It's just smart to get a second opinion.

He may be charged with unlawful use of a SS# or card, if that was not his number. However this will not necessarily bar him from obtaining a green card via his marriage to you. But you really need to have a full consult with a competent immigration attorney so you can have his case and issues fully assessed.

Your husband can have his green card application denied for various reasons. However, we would need additional information to determine what could be done for your husband and how likely the case will be denied. First, it is unclear whether your husband has fallen out of status or not. It is also important to know when he fell out of status (i.e. stopped attending classes). If your husband is out of status, he can be deported for solely being out of status. Second, your husband could be criminally charged with fraud for using someone else's social security card. He also has worked while on a visa that did not authorize him to work. If his green card is denied, he will likely be placed in removal proceedings where he can try to fight his deportation. It is important to consult with an attorney right away in order to avoid serious and possibly irreparable harm being done to your husband's ability to immigrate to the United States.

It depends on the immigration or criminal violation related to his use of the false social security number and if he ever made a "false claim to citizenship". If he has not, then the overstay and unauthorized employment will be forgiven under Section 245(a) as the immediate relative, spouse of a US citizen. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
