How can she go back for a short time to see her sick mother
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 11 months ago

It is never 100% safe to return to the country where someone has asylum from. She would have less risk if she applied for US citizenship but at her age, she would still need to take the exam in English to get it.

If she can't do that, last resort she can travel with her green card but she has to renew her Indian passport.

While she's there, she must also get and keep all documents related to the reason she is there, her sick mother, such as a doctor letter or death certificate. Keep your plane tickets. Also it's a good idea to get statements from people who see her in India while she's there stating that she did not go out only to see her mother. Have this notarized. This will all help to prevent her asylum from being taken away but there's no guarantee . Have her keep that for any future time that they may ask to see it.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you!
