Tourist Visa for my Mother in law?

Sorry if this is a repeated question but every situation is different.

We are wanting my Mother in law to come visit us sometimes. How can we get her a tourist visa? She is coming from Mexico, she has no intent on living in the U.S. My husband is a permanent resident (5 years now), about to apply for citizenship. He came here illegally years ago, so we filed for the I-129F and I-601 Waiver. With him entering illegally, will this affect her eligibility for a tourist Visa?

Any links and info will be much appreciated :)

Mother has to prove strong ties to Mexico, show reasons that she will return. She will be approved (or denied) based on her own merits.

Just remember, everyone who's applying for a tourist visa is already perceived to have immigrant intent, she has to overcome that.

Basically she has to do this on her own in Mexico? My husband can't start the process once he becomes a citizen?

What are some examples of important strong ties?

Yes, she applies on her own.

Strong ties may be: a spouse in Mexico, other children in Mexico, properties under her name (land, house, apartment, car), a stable job, bank accounts/savings

Thanks, she has all of those except for a spouse.
