Gustavo Arellano vs. Tom Tancredo on immigration *

The OC Weekly's Gustavo Arellano went verbally toe to toe last night in Denver with immigration critic and former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo. The OC Weekly streamed the event and gathered comments. On Twitter, some Arellano partisans were left underwhelmed. "I love Gustavo to death, but i got bored after 20 minutes and started watching something else," LA OpiniĆ³n columnist Pilar Marrero tweeted. Cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz also hoped for more fireworks. Arellano tweeted in response: "I felt I did my job, pero you can't please everyone, I guess! Gracias for tuning in, regardless!"

* Update: Now with video and Arellano's take on the evening
