She can certainly apply for a tourist visa, but it doesn't sound promising.......sounds like she would have a very, very difficult task of overcoming immigrant intent to the US...........but it cost only $160 to try.

I agree that it is going to be an uphill battle for her to get a visitor visa. With both her sibling and parents here immigrant intent is going to be high with her.

 

She is free to apply.

 

Let us know how it turns out.
