I-601A approived, but denied in Mexico?

I know that an I-601A does not guarantee success at the consular interview. My question is, how rare do people get denied at the embassy even with an approved I-601A in hand? My worry stems from our situation which is this. We have three kids. I was born in the U.S. My wife would have a cookie cutter case of being brought over as a child EXCEPT for the fact that the SSN she has been using is not fake, it's someone else's. I have to point out that the SSN does not belong to a citizen. It was given to someone as a work permit that decided not to use it who then went back to live in Mexico. Our lawyer is saying the chance is slim, but you never know who you are going to get at the embassy. Could just be someone having a bad day. He has said that filing for Asylum is an option since things are getting so bad in Mexico. I just wanted to get some thoughts.

was this ever disclosed in the waiver? There is always a risk of being denied at the interview even after waiver approval, not common, but not unheard of either.

What would be the basis of an asylum claim?

I have seen it happen twice. Once was drugs and the other was a 9c situation.

How often it happens I do not know.

Absolutely! this was disclosed in the I-130 as well as the I-601A. I guess we're just worried about some guy having a bad day and seeing things differently. Do we know how often it happens? I just wish I had SOME sort of statistics to help base a decision.

how often statistic wise? no idea, just have heard of it happening occasionaly. if it was already disclosed on the waiver then you should be fine, just be honest because it may or may not come up at the interview.

Waiver was for illegal presence.
