Sure. If they are coming as tourist, the original reason for the tourist visa will not be relevant. The new/current trip will be the factor the officer at the airport will review. Why are you coming? Who are you visiting? Do you have a round trip ticket? These will be the things that a tourist needs to be able to answer.

Absolutely! So long as they have a valid visa, they can anther at will. It is irrelevant how the visa was obtained. Just make sure they do not overstay. What is your immigration status?  You may reply directly to me at meltser@bmlaw.com
