Literally never, ever in my life heard somebody say "I'm from LA California" or "Chicago Illinois."
Like....not even once. Ever.

I took my reply out because its actually an unincorporated land in Texas.
So basically people say they are from LA, Cali so as not to be confused with LA, Texas?

Some live in very small towns. If they didn't specify which state it was in, you'd never know where they were talking about. If I said "I live in Marshall", would you know where that is? People from other countries do it also, it's not just the U.S.
