A visitor visa can be denied by the U.S. Consulate for many reasons, including previous fraud, criminal record or immigrant intent.

If your husband is a U.S. citizen, then the Consulate might think he will file for adjustment of status for his parents once they enter.

They need to prove their ties to the country, in order for the U.S. Consulate to believe that they will actually return home & not apply for a greencard once they get to the United States.
