She should return right away and hopefully will be admitted back on her green card. If not, her original petitioner will need to reapply for her.

In any event, if she'll be facing difficulties at the airport, and CBP will ask her to sign a Form where she agrees to renounce her green card (under the promise of admitting her on a B-2 visitor status if she agrees), she should be instructed not agree to anything bur instead insist that she wants to have a hearing I front of an immigration judge. Nothing less.
