Yes, Deloitte agreed to sponsor but the immigration climate was slightly different then. The firm sponsored green card as well after I made Senior and the process to obtain that took about 2.5 years. Someone responded to the job posting to it was back to the table.

OP - you’re welcome! I started out as an intern with the firm while in college before getting a full time offer. Regarding my job posting comment, I am referring to the recruitment part of the green card process where the company has to put out ads for your position to see if any eligible Americans apply. The purpose being to prove out that the Company is justified in hiring a foreigner since there are no eligible Americans to fill the position the Company seeks to fill by filing your green card. Let me know if any other questions.
