Yes legally she can if she is married to an American citizen

The USA allows dual citizenship, but not China.

I went to the US 24 years ago and lived there for 22 years before coming back to China, I became a US citizen, but not after holding green card for 15 years. Giving up Chinese citizenship is a hard thing to do. I  am now finding it not easy to live in China with a foreign passport. I honestly don't understand why some of these people who live in China but want a foreign passport.

Technically no but as a Green Card holder (Resident Alien) she has all the meaningful benefits of being a US Citizen and can stay here forever
