she can come as a tourist any time she likes. but Canada has a strong legal system and good enforcement, so she's not going to get asylum in the US or be approved as a battered spouse as a Canadian.

No,she is a Canadian citizen,why would US immigration laws protect her? Domestic abuse is not grounds for asylum.
