Can my mother-in-law get into the U.S. With her green card?

I’m planning my wedding in Mexico and my fiancs mother is from Thailand. She
has been here for over 40 years and has a Thai passport and a U.s. Green card. I
want to be sure before I book my wedding because Trump’s travel ban is
controversial.

There is no issue with her traveling to Mexico and returning provided she she is not in any violation of US laws and her passport and green card are valid.  The travel ban does not apply to citizens of Thailand.  Congratulations on your impending wedding.
