Mark Krikorian is a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues who has served as executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies since 1995. The center is an independent, non-partisan research organization that examines and critiques the impact of immigration on the United States. His knowledge and expertise in the immigration issue has brought him many times before Congress to testify. He has written numerous articles and has authored two books, “The New Case Against Immigration, Both Legal and Illegal” and “How Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration.”

1 in 5 U.S. residents speaks a foreign language at home. This amounts to 61.8 million people. Immigration is the reason for this and according to Mark, too much of it becomes a problem for national unity.

Why? Mark went on to note that Spanish speaking immigrants make up about half of our total immigration flow. About 100 years ago we had people from many nations coming here from the various nations of Europe who spoke different languages and who often had different religious beliefs. This diversity was actually more conducive to assimilation compared to today where we have the least diverse immigration flow in America's history.

The reason a lack of diversity results in a large slowdown of assimilation is because when a very high percentage of your immigration population speaks only one language, the potential exists for creating an alternative mainstream culture. Hence, as Jim pointed out, we begin to see things like voting ballots showing up in both English and Spanish.

With one million legal immigrants coming to our shores every year (speaking primarily one language), businesses are going to respond in their own way. So while the general population may respond with calls to make English the official language of America, some businesses have been responding by projecting themselves as bilingual by asking you to pick a language choice when you call them. The government isn't mandating that businesses offer such options but they have fostered the environment that created them through excessive immigration.

As the program continued, the following points were discussed:

--How “protective” is the fencing we have on the southern border?

--Was Representative Duncan Hunter right when he said that ISIS militants have been caught crossing our southern border?

--Why are local law enforcement agencies frustrating efforts at the federal level to detain and deport criminal illegal immigrants?

--What disease scenario could cause mass migration of people into the United States?

--Why do some people see an Ebola-based travel ban as controversial?

There's much more from Jim, Mark and Crosstalk callers when you review this timely broadcast.

Casey Mattox serves as Senior Counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom where he plays a pivotal role with the Center for Life. He has been active in defending the sanctity of life and holding the abortion industry accountable for its fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars. He is also active in defending the freedom of conscience of healthcare workers.

This Crosstalk features a look at the fallout from the “bathroom bill” controversy in Houston, Texas. This bill would guarantee that a man who thinks he's a woman could go into the restroom of his choice. Those who opposed this began a petition drive and came up with the required number of signatures to force a vote on the matter. Casey noted, however, that the city illegally prevented this issue from appearing on the ballot. Those behind the petition drive sued the city and in response the city demanded that every pastor in opposition to the “bathroom bill” must provide city officials with all of their sermons as well as all private communications such as text messages, e-mails or anything else that involved discussion of homosexuality.

Earlier this week, Alliance Defending Freedom filed a motion in court to stop this and tell city officials that they are not entitled to the information being asked for because the pastors are not parties to the lawsuit.

As of broadcast time, it had been alleged that there was some kind of reversal but Casey noted that this isn't true although Mayor Annise Parker has indicated she will narrow the subpoena. On the other hand, Jim noted that Mayor Parker is now denying that she knew about the city's attempt to subpoena the sermons and correspondence between pastors and their congregations. Yet Dave Welch, Executive Director of the Houston Area U.S. Pastors Council, received a subpoena and he has said that this was initiated by the mayor herself.

Even if the mayor and city officials are backing away from the sermon aspect of the subpoena, that still leaves the demand for private communication information from the pastors about homosexuality and that is still unconstitutional.

In California an edict has come down from the state insurance department that orders every insurance policy in the state to begin covering elective abortions. Churches are also receiving notices from their insurance representatives that their policies are now paying for elective abortion coverage for the pastor and the staff. Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a federal complaint with the Office of Civil Rights and the Department of Health and Human Services asking them to enforce a federal law that prohibits the state from taking this kind of action.

Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk with news regarding the gender identity policy situation in the Sparta, Wisconsin, school district. Last evening the committee of the school board voted to table the matter.

Jim then introduced Sam Rohrer, the president of Pennsylvania Pastors Network & American Pastors Network. He is a former businessman, and a former state legislator as he served as a Pennsylvania state representative from 1992-2010.

This Crosstalk featured Sam bringing a biblical perspective to two attacks facing America. The first dealt with the state of Texas where Houston officials have issued subpoenas demanding that a group of pastors turn over copies of sermons and sermon notes that deal with homosexuality and gender identity. In addition, some pastors were also ordered to turn over all communications with members of the congregation regarding Houston's non-discrimination law. Those pastors that fail to comply could be held in contempt of court. Sam believes this is intimidation in order to jump over the protections of the First Amendment and is reminiscent of the activities of the old Soviet Union.

Sam also discussed what he feels is the greatest threat to the gospel and to religious freedom. It's the threat of Islam. He pointed to the Oklahoma City beheading and the continuing terrorism of the Islamic State (ISIS).

Why are so many pastors silent on this issue? Sam noted that pastors either don't know what to say, they're afraid to speak what they do know or they're afraid that if they say something counter to what Islam is, it may harm their ability to preach the gospel to a Muslim who needs the Lord.

Sam also gave brief mention to those who adhere to a Communist/Marxist/atheistic philosophy, a philosophy that is also antithetical to God and Jesus Christ. Together with the organized homosexual lobby and Islam, they all have a common goal to destroy Christianity, the Bible, decency, morality, the rule of law and our constitutional frame of government.

Guest: Phyllis Schlafly

Many women today are avoiding marriage and according to Phyllis Schlafly, those that want to go ahead with marriage, want to marry someone with a job. The problem is, those men are becoming harder to find because free trade has taken away many middle class jobs.

This is just one of many factors affecting the American family as discussed on this edition of Crosstalk. Phyllis has the expertise to comment on these factors because of her background as founder and president of Eagle Forum. She's been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her bestselling 1964 book, “A Choice Not An Echo.” She's the author of some 20 books and publishes a monthly newsletter, “The Phyllis Schlafly Report” and has a syndicated column which appears in 100 newspapers. She has been called the “iron lady” of the conservative movement. She conducts daily radio commentaries and despite turning 90 years old this past August has just released a new book, “Who Killed the American Family?”

As the program moved along, Phyllis provided commentary on numerous other factors she believes are having the greatest impact on the family. These include: No-fault/unilateral divorce, U.N. treaties from bureaucrats that don't understand our way of life, expensive college loans and the family courts. Other factors from her book include the effects of welfare reform, globalism vs. homemakers, psychological disorders, advice from newspapers, over-medicating children, the influence of television and more.

Larry Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America.

Larry stopped by the Crosstalk studios once again to bring listeners an update on Second Amendment rights and the methods being used by the opposition to affect change.

One point discussed included troubling legislation out of New York that would permit the seizing of guns because someone is concerned about them. Larry noted that this is not only an offense against the Second Amendment but also the Fifth Amendment because there's no due process. It's also a violation of the Fourth Amendment because it wouldn't require going to court to have an adversarial proceeding and have a judge and/or jury determine that seizing of the guns would be the proper course of action due to the possibility that this person is a danger to himself/herself or others.

In another case, Bill Gates and other billionaires are bankrolling a controversial gun control initiative that will appear on the November 4th ballot in the state of Washington. Initiative 594 would criminalize any handing over of a firearm to anyone. That includes a son, a neighbor or even a roommate. This means that if you were hunting with your son and you wanted him to hold your gun so that you could tie your shoe laces. the handing over of your gun would make both of you felons under this initiative.

At what point does safety through legislation become control? You decide when you listen to Larry as he comments on the latest news affecting gun owners across the nation.
