Need legal / immigration info? Clearly ask NS.
So me and 3 buddies are thinking about moving down to Vegas in a few months. Won't get into the details, but in short, we're 21-22, finishing up school in a month, and looking for a change. Been to Vegas before and loved it. Plus America is still getting pwnd by this economy apparently and you can get legit houses for 100k. I couldn't believe the places I was looking at. I'm scooping one up quick. You can't get a pot to piss in near a city up here for that cheap. So just a couple q's for anyone who has been through the process of moving to America:
1. How hard is it to get a Green Card / Perminent resident card (allows you to live and work there)? A couple of us have uni degrees and a couple just highschool. Will they let us in to work or do you need to be filling some sort of specific need? We're looking to be tax paying citizens, no criminal records, etc etc.
2. My mom has duel citizenship and can probably get me one quickly even though she lives here, but it doesn't really help out my friends. On the website its a bit confusing but sounds like you need to be "sponsored" in by an employer or a family member. What if your just going to find work while your down there? Is there a general application you can fill out to get a card? Or do you HAVE to have a job BEFORE you go down, and then be "sponsored" by that employer?
Thanks for any help!
Spark notes: Will america let 4 Canadian 22 year olds in to live and work fairly easily or is this going to be a giant fucking pain and then get rejected? +K
