MASS MIGRATION DEBATE RE “DIVIDING LINES” [Feb. 4–11]: Global migration is a path toward destroying the excellent achievements of Western civilization. After centuries of war, Europe finally matured. Having reached this pinnacle, it is now being threatened. Migration impairs the host countries’ means to maintain the same level of social welfare for all and often threatens national security. What should be done is to confront the cause of migration. Those troubled nations and their leaders need to be held accountable and then be helped to correct the motivating factors causing the forces of migration. Until these nations mature, their people will continue to flee. Bob Paul,DALA-JARNA, SWEDEN AMERICA HAS HAD A LOVE-hate relationship with its immigrants since the beginning of its history. It is a cruel pretense that we don’t want our immigrants—we…

trump, cohen and the litany of low motives

DURING 10 YEARS OF SERVICE, MICHAEL Cohen says, he threatened hundreds of people on behalf of his boss, Donald J. Trump: he strong-armed contractors, browbeat reporters and warned schools against releasing Trump’s grades. But sitting before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Feb. 27, Cohen himself became a threat as he ticked off a long list of potentially criminal acts committed by Trump and laid bare the many legal and political perils the President faces for his conduct as a businessman, candidate and Commander in Chief. It was a sordid scene. Cohen produced a check, signed by Trump, allegedly reimbursing him for the hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. He claimed that Trump inflated his assets to request a bank loan and that he used money from the…

pakistan and india trade airstrikes as tensions rise over kashmir

WITH TIT-FOR-TAT AIRSTRIKES ACROSS a cease-fire line in late February, tensions between India and Pakistan rose to their highest point in years. The two nuclear-armed states have long clashed over the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which each claims as its own. But the situation deteriorated there after a Feb. 14 bombing by a Pakistan-based militant group killed 40 Indian paramilitaries, the deadliest attack in 30 years. CONFLICTING CLAIMS India sent jets into Pakistani airspace on Feb. 26 for the first time since 1971, and bombed what it said was a training camp for the terrorist organization responsible for the Feb. 14 attack. Pakistan denied any such sites were hit. The next day, Pakistan launched strikes of its own. It said it had shot down two Indian jets that it claimed…

trump says he wants 5g and 6g. what would that mean for internet users?

THOUGH PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED ON Feb. 21 that he wants “5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible,” that kind of upgrade to the nation’s Internet is easier typed than done. The term 5G is simply the name given to the next generation in wireless cellular technology, which is the fifth. Like the jump from DSL to fiber Internet, the move to 5G will bring with it faster data speeds—a hundred-fold increase over today’s standards—as well as lower latency (a measure of delayed response) and increased support for even more connected devices. That means smartphone owners will be able to play games lag-free, autonomous vehicles could react instantly to changes in traffic, and smart homes could get even smarter. But, though more 5G-friendly phones will debut for…
