Immigration check 1 hour between flights

I'm flying on an international flight from Europe to EZE, I need to get to Ushuaia the same day and the only option without transiting to AEP is to book for another flight one hour later. My flight arrives at 7:35am, will there be a line at this time? Do I need to go through immigration at all?
I only have hand luggage and of course will do online check in, but 1 hour is really tight.

One hour at that time of the morning, when pretty much every flight from Europe and US arrive, will be extremely busy.
Lines can get quite long, with hundreds of passengers coming in.
Although officers can be pretty quick in processing incoming passengers, it will still take some time.
Besides, once you go through Immigrations and Customs, you will have to use a different security check-point/access for domestic flights.
And depending on which airline you are flying/terminal you are arriving, it can be quite a walk.

Thank you for your replay. I think I will play safe and book a later flight.

Separate booking or one? If the former then definitely book a later flight.
