A: I would be more than happy to speak with you. When entering the US as a visitor it is always best to be prepared to document all of your ties to your home country. This can include a number of things including apartment leases, enrollment in school, bank statements, confirmation of employment. If she chooses to attempt to enter again she should be well prepared before doing so and have documentation in her hand to show to the officer.
