It depends on the state and the type of business. You can form an LLC or corporation but may have trouble with insurance and bonding if that is required. Some states require certain types of licenses holder (such as liquor) to be citizens able to vote. You cannot earn income in the USA unless you have EAD or green card so you can form the corporation but may be prohibited from operating it depending on the nature of the business.
