i want to be with her in the due day by a touristic visa ....

That can happen ?

It is very hard for a Third Country National to get a tourist visa in Mexico for the US.  You will need to show extremely strong ties to Mexico and it does make a difference if you have RP vs RT in Mexico.

 

If your wife has a maternity leave I would consider giving birth in Mexico and staying together there for as long as she can.  The baby can get a passport by filing the Counselor Record of Birth Abroad form.

 

Also please update your timeline!

What's your status in Mexico?  What are your strong ties to Mexico to overcome the presumption of immigrant intent?

 

Extremely hard to get a US tourist visa from a third country.  

Pregnancy and birth are not "tourist" activities so hard to see how you would qualify for a tourist visa.

Morocco is a high-fraud country so it will be close to impossible to get a tourist visa to enter the US when you have a wife and baby on the way.  Clear immigration intent there.  Only way for you to get to the US legally is through the spousal visa.  Your wife applies with a petition as the first step.  Have she done this?

You can apply for a tourist visa, sure. You will need to show strong ties to your current country of residence if you are to be successful. Has your wife filed an i130 for you yet?

No we didn't

She needs to?  It is going to be a long wait.  Is there a reason why not?

You can apply for a tourist visa; likely to be an uphill battle imo though. Is she in favor of you visiting on a tourist visa? 

 

Else, she could be with you in Mexico together to give birth and she can get a baby a US passport by filing CRBA assuming she has the financial resources.
