We congratulate CSCI Galway Committee Vice-Chair Billy Lawless and his wife Anne, who yesterday became US citizens, took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America and registered to vote! The Lawless family emigrated to Chicago from Galway, Ireland in 1998. Billy and Anne are part of the restaurant royalty in Chicago. They own some of the most loved restaurants and pubs in Chicago including the Gage and Henri on Michigan Avenue, the Dawson in River West and the Irish Pub in Wrigleyville. Billy is also a board member and co-founder of the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition, fighting tirelessly for immigration reform for many, many years.
Below, watch a video of Senator Dick Durbin congratulate Billy and Anne Lawless on the floor of the US Senate:
