Q: Can I petition my husband who has a deportation order? I am a US citizen.
A: Yes, but things may not be as you hope. First, it is important to know the reason for deportation. If it is possible to somehow legalize your husband's status based on your marriage, it might be done while he is in the U.S., but perhaps not. Certainly, the deportation order itself must be addressed in some manner. Consider information concerning bar waivers here: https://www.1-800-usa-immigration.com/i601-bar-waiver.html. You can also see some blog posts here: http://www.1-800-usa-immigration.com/blog/tag/illegal-entry/. You will need a qualified immigration attorney to help and it will cost money if anything can be done for him.
