Thank you for your quick response. All the mentioned options are unlikely to work because of her age (employment option), not having that substantial amount for investment, having a good job and nice life (asylum), and luck of time (we tried DV three times unsuccessfully).
Considering her age and the fact that she is alone there and my wife is her only relative, is there any chance for some kind of human rights consideration or something of this sort? Have no idea what it might be, but common sense tells me that the elderly person that does not need any support from the social services might be able to get some exemption?
No, unfortunately not under these circumstances. Otherwise, that would open the floodgates and the US would be flush with individuals in the same or similar situation.
