Technically, yes, its possible. Make sure she has the most up to date paperwork with regards to the CR-1 (like the NOA 2). She will need to demonstrate strong ties to her home country as well (Job, house, lease, car, family etc). Anything that shows she cant just up and leave and not come back.

If she answers their questions confidently, and demonstrates that she is knowledgable about the visa (immigration) process, then there shouldnt be any problem. Keep in mind though. It is never guarenteed. If the border officer for some reason feels like she is going to abandon her immigration and stay illegally, then it will be a no go.

Also, having a return ticket helps, to show that she intends to go back.

Hope that helps!!

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley
