(Video) SoCal's 'Ask A Mexican,' Gustavo Arellano, Debates Anti-Mexican Tom Tancredo Live
Fireworks in red, white, blue and green are on tap Tuesday night as Southern California's own Gustavo Arellano, a Mexican immigration historian known for his "¡Ask a Mexican!" column at sister paper OC Weekly, will take on notorious illegal-immigrant basher Tom Tancredo in a debate live from Colorado to be streamed right here.
Tancredo is a former congressman who just lost his bid to become governor of Colorado. He's also one of the nation's most vocal opponents of illegal immigration.
It's book-smarts against knuckle-dragging nativism in this debate for all time. Watch it live (video stream after the jump) at 6:30 p.m. Pacific time.
