Is pretending to live in the U.S. with three consecutive I-94s be considered a violation of the visa?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

My wife and daughter were staying in the US with their tourist visas, and my daughter was attending public school here. Their visas were cancelled at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, and now we're starting the consular processing. My wife didn't accrue unlawful presence because she had her I-94 current, right? Thanks!
