What can be expected at port of entry by a visitor coming to US on B-2 visa?

My wife is coming to US on B-2 visa in May 2013. She had an F-2 visa rejection on section 214(b), prior to her B-2 visa approval. I am also planning to apply for my H-1 visa in this April. Does this all bring any trouble to my wife at port of entry? She is planning to visit US only for 2 months on B-2 visa and is sponsoring herself.
