Hello, can we choose the port of entry for our fiances to arrive at?  Do all states have these Ports or Entries? I'm trying to see if Los Angeles would be better than NYC or if there is a difference.

Your POE is wherever the plane lands in (or the vehicle crosses into) the U.S. or its territories.  Any border city with an international bridge or highway, or any airport that receives international flights, is a POE.

 

You may arrange the immigrant's flights as you like.  Search for reviews of various POEs here:

even canada has US POE in some international airports

flying out of Morocco / have u seen a flight that takes u to LA?

check all the layovers 

Canada and Paris if u go that way allow someone with an approved US visa to transit to US

but coming from the Asia direction ,   you may need transit visas for layovers

 

and do not buy a ticket in 2 or more phases like one to Paris and pick up a ticket there for the US

the Moroccan would not be allowed on the flight to Paris with no visa to france

the ticket must be Morocco to the US with layovers as needed but not separate tickets 

 

and going  from casa to arizona she wlll have several layovers .  after POE it willl all be domestic

Thanks for the info! I was browsing flights in January and February. I did see a few going to Los Angeles, he kinda wants to do a road trip from L.A. to Arizona, so that may be ideal.
