From the 1939 film Let Freedom Ring, playing right now on TCM:
Maggie Adams: You’ve got lots of money, haven’t you?
Jim Knox: Ooooh, I keep it in barrels.
Maggie Adams: Then why do you go around robbing poor people, stealing their land and burning them out? If you’re such a rich man, why are you a thief?
Jim Knox: Where I come from people don’t call me a thief, they call me a ‘financier’.
Maggie Adams: And what country do you come from?
Jim Knox: It’s not a country, it’s a street. Wall Street.

In theory. The reality is, though, that Wall Street would turn him over to authorities the moment the US government’s check cleared.

Somebody on Twitter recommended Guantánamo Bay: once you’re there, you’re guaranteed never to face an American court!
