A: If in fact he marries, the marriage is void from its onset. You can divorce him and notify the USCIS of the situation by sending a letter. It is very unlikely the USCIS will take any action against him until he has an interview for an immigration benefit. The letter will be placed in a file and addressed by the interviewing officer.

A: The US does not allow for polygamy. This is an issue and will prevent his entry into the US. You must inform immigration.
