Born and raised in Chicago coming from a long line born and raised here except for that Irish couple that came through Ellis Island and those two who snuck in from Canada over 200 years ago.

I'm an 8th generation US citizen on one side and 5th on the other (if you don't count my Grandmother who was English and a LEGAL IMMIGRANT, through marriage).

Sometimes I exceed the speed limit; once I double parked, and I've made a few 'U turns' where they aren't allowed. Other than that, my legal status is pretty unremarkable, I'd have to say...
