No, not in a legal status anyway. Someone will have to file a petition for her that will make her an immediate relative to a USC and cure that unlawful presence she is accruing right now. In her case it would have to be a USC child 21 or over; a USC parent if she is under 21; or a USC spouse. Good luck!
