Add users with same SAM from other forest to existing AD group

We have 2 forests with AD sync between them. Now i want user from Forest B to have access to the local ad group they are member of with their forest A account.

So Forest_A\Jane_Doe is member of Forest_A\group_A. How can i read members from ForestA\group_A and copy the same usernames from Forest_B into Forest_A\group_A

Resulting in:
Forest_A\Jane_Doe is member of Forest_A\group_A and also Forest_B\Jane_Doe is member of Forest_A\group_A

    You can create a Trust between two Domains, if they belong to different forest and access the objects post successful trust implementation.

    You can test the same by searching a User from Domain B by accessing ADUC from Domain A.

    Also the result you require can be implemented.

    You can proceed with below link or can google out for how to setup 2 way transitive trust between domains.
