Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren battled immigration attorney Francisco Hernandez on the need for a border wall during the "Battle at the Border" town hall event, hosted by Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade.

Lahren advocated for a physical barrier along the border, explaining it would allow for the more specific allocation of resources and ease the burden on Border Patrol agents.

She said that the "worst of the worst" illegal aliens who potentially smuggle drugs across the border won't want to go through ports of entry and would instead choose to sneak across.

"Because there's no barrier to stop them. Instead, we need a wall!" she argued, while Hernandez questioned why Republicans haven't "fixed" such issues over the last six years they've been in control of Congress.

Kilmeade then referenced to Hernandez a recent poll that found 50 percent of Latinos surveyed approve of the job President Trump is doing, a 19-point increase from December of last year.

"I want to see how many Hispanics actually go vote," Hernandez replied "Give [Trump] a chance to fail. OK, let's go. Let's go."
