Grandma and Grandpa came over in 1907 when they were first married. My grandpa wanted to leave Czechoslovakia to avoid the Austrian military. His brother hadn’t gotten any papers yet, so he used his brother’s ID to get through Ellis Island. In 1919, he became a citizen and he was a good patriotic American but he came illegally. I’m a couple generations removed so I don’t think they’ll try to get rid of me but if ICE comes to the door I’m hiding under the bed. – Jan
