The event is free and open to individuals 18 years or older; however, a space must be reserved in advance through EventBrite.
The panel discussion will be aired on Fox News Channel at 7 p.m. Sunday and again at 10 p.m.
The event comes nearly a week after President Donald Trump touted a non-existent border wall in San Antonio.
“You look at different places, they put up a wall, no problem," Trump told members of the media Saturday. "You look at San Antonio, you look at so many different places, they go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest cities, immediately, immediately.”
San Antonio is more than 100 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and does not have a border wall.
