“I Was Denied U.S. Tourist Visa Because My Visa Was A Green Card Holder”

It is highly possible to have a spouse who is a green card holder in the US and you still get denied when you apply for a U.S. tourist visa. Making plans to visit your spouse in the United States on a tourist visa while your marriage-based green card (I-130 petition) application processing is still pending could attract a denial.
The challenges and risks involved are huge, as you would need to convince the Consular that you plan to stay only for a short time and would leave the United States before your tourist visa expired, because the Consular interviewing you could suspect that you are trying to bypass the green card process to be with your spouse sooner.
Although you intend to live permanently in the United States once you receive your green card, you will need to present a superior logic to the Consular that you will not be settling in the United States yet. That can be difficult to do if you have already quit your job and sold all of your property in your home country. That is why many people choose to visit the United States before doing either of those things. It is therefore important to present strong evidence that you plan to return to your home country after your short visit — though there is still always a risk of denial, as admission is never guaranteed.
