My grandparents came through Ellis Island legally in 1905. They didnt sneak in, or try forcing their way in. I'm proud to be 2nd generation Italian born in the USA. I'm also proud of my Italian heritage, descending from Bari, italy.
Im Italian, my paternal grandpa was born and raised in Northern Italy, so he was not your typical looking Italian, he was tall, blonde, long thin nose , made the best apple pie and crust ever......lol.
