Question about when to renew US Visa (Mexican)

A quick question. My wife's (K1->now on GC renewal) parents will be coming to visit in August and early September. They have a 5 year visa, issued by Mexico, to visit the US. However, it expires October.

A friend mentioned to us that they'll probably be denied at the POE with a visa that expires so soon after they plan to return to Mexico. Should we advise them to expedite visa reissuance (renewal?) in Mexico?

Thanks for your advice!

Nope they are fine, Visa is only for the purpose of entry. For example say if their visa is expiring on Oct 30th then that would be the last day they can enter the US.

The duration that they can stay in US is determined by the CBP officer and mentioned on their I-94.

They can enter in Aug/Sep and can stay in US until the date marked on their I-94 at time of entry.
