Did your parents use a tourist visa to enter the US with the intent to immigrate or are they planning to return home after a visit and have the interview in their home country?

You file the I-130. They visit as long as their tourist visa allows and then return home to await the rest of the process, including the interview in their home country. After that they will be granted an IR-5 visa and return to America for good.

They can't stay and adjust status here. It's illegal, and USCIS will have no doubt about intent considering they arrived 2 days ago and you're filing papers already.

You have to file I-130 along with Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. The requirement is your parents to be legal in US (tourist visa not expired). Check USCIS site for available information and fees.

Adjusting is not the issue, what they said when they entered regarding the purpose of the visit.

Will it be an issue - probably not.

Is it an example of why it can be so difficult to get visa's from certain countries - absolutely.

Perhaps you should look up a B-2 visa on USCIS's website. Using a B-2 for the purpose of immigrating is illegal. AOS is allowed for when circumstances change. Unlikely OP's parents came over 2 days ago and in that time circumstances changed and now they need to stay.

As Boiler said it may not be an issue but it IS illegal, COULD be trouble depending on what they were asked at POE, and condoning it or suggesting how to commit fraud is against VJ TOS.

The parents entered as tourists 2 days ago according to the OP. That is the issue. They lied to the CBP officer.

What will happen? Who knows?
