Everyone is welcome here...

To be Frank.. most people don't even care if your "legal" or "illegal".

As long as you don't go on govt welfare.. and you're willing to work hard and not rip pple off...... c'mon in...
Well, most of the Americans I personally know here in Europe are illegal. They come with their visa waiver, and simply overstay. One of my friends from New York overstayed for 5 years. Here in Europe we also do not really care if Americans are legal or illegal. They are always welcome

Not true at all!

Contact the LV Chamber of Commerce and see how they can guide you through the process. Find them through goggle.

Don't pay attention to the stupid morons you see with the tiki torches.

Unless we are native americans, we all came here at some time. Many from Europe.

Day out day in we only hear here in Europe that "America first" means immigrants are not welcome anymore...
Let me just roll out the welcome mat for you!

Everyone here is from some other place. No one cares at all about where you are from, your sex, your ethnicity, your religion, or the color of your skin. Here it's all about have vs have not, and money rules. You will be completely welcome to live in any place you can afford. No one cares that you are purple with yellow spots and came from Venus. You will fit right in here. As long as there is green in your wallet.

If those 25 jobs you are bringing with you happen to pay a living wage with benefits, you will practically be worshiped as a god. You will be able to take your pick of hundreds of applicants. If you want educated people, say so. I usually have to take the degrees off my resume to get a job here.

One of my volunteer jobs is teaching ESL. My last student was a chemist from Ethiopia and he is doing just fine.

I live in a little cul-de-sac. I have neighbors who are Hispanic, Black, Asian, German, and White. We all get along just fine. All ages too. The guy across the street is a retired Colonel who used to be an Air Force pilot.

Vegas is one of the most diverse places that I've ever been to, much less lived in.

People from all over the world visit and live in Las Vegas. In my experience, the only city that beats the diversity in Las Vegas is New York City.

Actually the group that gets the most resistance is Californians. Which is kind of interesting as I think the largest single population group in Las Vegas is those who came from CA who outnumber the locals and any other group.

So the truth is that the Californians don't want any more Calfornians.

All others welcome.

Wish I was kidding.

Though there was that fuss in the past three years about the Syrian refugees being relocated here from Europe through the local LV Catholic refugee program that does it. Las Vegas did take some families. It was Europe's overflow from the refugee crisis that the President at the time promised to take 10,000 of to help Europe. I do recall locals online and in the news didn't want them here. It even became a talking point in the UNLV 2016 Presidential Primary Debate. Then came the Trump ban on seven countries the next year in direct response to that outcry which was later called the 'Muslim ban'. I only know this because my husband is Muslim and I paid attention in Las Vegas to the UNLV Presidential Primary Debate in 2016. Gawd, it feels so long ago now.

Drawbridge effect? I know Portland hates Californians because it's making the city affordable for everyone.

I have had Austrians tell me the Germans were hillbillies, and the Swiss were gypsies. Las Vegas is a big city, and there are many different mindsets, same with Europe. Some of the immigrants can be really in your face kind of people, that is hard to take. Otherwise, nine out of ten locals don't have a clue about Budapest or Bucharest, or Taiwan and Thailand. Dogs and blight can be big sources of discontent. The possibilities are endless.
