"Sometimes humanitarian needs trump immigration laws."
Due to the format of the debate, with each speaker introduced before he or she spoke, it was sometimes unclear who was speaking. As I listened, I was also working, so once in a while a statement caught my attention, only to leave me frustrated as they moved on at the end of the statement without thanking the speaker by name. This was, unfortunately, the case with the above quote. Therefore, the candidate who made that statement will have to remain a mystery until I re-listen to the debate in the quiet of my home this evening, or until one of our readers posts the answer in comments.
UPDATE: I was ready to bet the farm that it was Kucinich who said this, but as it turns out, it was Joe Biden.
