Perhaps, it will depend upon whether or how recently, if ever, you are found to have violated the terms of your B-2 visa. More information is needed. How long did you stay for each visit? When was your last visit to the U.S.? These answers can be helpful, but the attached link may help you make a decision.

A person can be presumed to have immigrant intent, when they try to enter the U.S. on a B1 or B2 visa. The CBP can require the person to challenge this presumption, but often it will allows those into the U.S. who do not seem to remain in the U.S. for long periods of time.

If a B2 visa holder has spent more time in the U.S. in the recent past, then they can be questioned, the B2 visa canceled, and/or the visa holder returned to the nation where he came from. This depends upon the CBP Officer's discretion.

The above is general information and does not create an attorney client relationship.
