I have filed Form I-130 for my sister (and her 2 boys) to come from Argentina. I received the approval from USCIS. Can she and her boys come to the US and wait here while we get her I-485 approved?

A: By filing the i130, they have demonstrated that they have immigrant intent. This would conflict with traveling her on a tourist visa which is only for non immigrant intent.
