Has anyone seen this article? Anyone with experience in getting an elderly relative in Mexico a B-2 recently? 

We had been told years ago by immigration attorneys that my mother-in-law in Mexico has no chance of obtaining a B-2 visa to visit us in Chicago for a few weeks but then I read this... 

A little background - my husband is undocumented and we are waiting on our 601a decision before his visa interview in Juarez.  

My mother-in-law is 52 years old, and she/my blind father in law own their condo in Tlaxcala.  

With property ownership, roundtrip airline tickets, me covering all of her costs,  daughter/grandchildren/sisters/brothers and blind husband who she is full time caretaker for waiting back in Tlaxcala, could she obtain a B-2? 

She would interview/fly from Mexico City.  I'll have to get her a passport.

Well you do not mention any positives about her situation, but there is nothing to stop her applying.

52 is not exactly “elderly” these days. Quite a few kids at my younger one’s elementary school have parents around that age or older. Does she not work?

Yes lol I would agree with that.  I'll be 50 when my kids hit high school :0

She is not technically employed.  She is a full time caregiver to her blind husband.  Will get a doctor to provide a report stating this. 

Getting her passport now; can't hurt to try.

Never tries to hurt.  I have an employee whom is DACA and his mother and father are both here illegally.  The grandmother of my employee was able to get a tourist visa, I figured she would get denied since she has a son living illegally in Texas

Does anyone know how long a B1/B2/Border Crossing visa permits a non-immigrant to visit the US?  I can't believe I can't find this on travel.state.gov

2 or 3 weeks? 

Can anyone tell me what "ties" they used when obtaining this type of visa for a Mexican? I see they advise not even getting plane tickets until after a successful interview 

How does my MIL provide evidence that I am paying for her trip? An affidavit from me?

Usually 10 years but upto the CO.   For the program above 14 to 21 days.  Same Price.
