Holy cow. If there'd been a table he'd have been pounding it with his shoe!BTW the claim that anyone would have done it is false. I know a lot of people who went to some trouble to immigrate *legally*, both in the US and Canada.
I believe GJ's implication is that anyone in the same circumstances that drove them to avoiding normal channels out of expediency - that person would do the same thing. Someone who immigrates legally is probably not dealing with those circumstances (most likely having a family that needs to be fed.)
