A: A B2 visa is a non immigrant visa. Your mother has shown immigrant intent. She may not be admitted into the USA for this reason. If she does attempt to enter the USA on her B2 she will need to carry with her sufficient documentation to indicate her intention to return to her home country at the expiration of her visit. Since this would mean flying to the USA not knowing whether she will be admitted she may not want to just sit tight until she has her immigrant visa.
