The Federalists passed this law because they were very supportive of the English and the English are in a war with the French. This makes them mad at the French so they made this law.
All in favor?
The Alien and Sedation acts: This will not allow the French to enter our country so easy. This will also allow the President to throw anyone he wants out of the country.
We will just love our new home in America!
NO FOREIGNERS ALLOWED IN AMERICA!
THE SOLIDERS CAN KICK ANYONE OUT OF THE COUNTRY THAT THEY THINK ARE TROUBLE.
PART OF THE SEDITION ACT IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN PUT ANY PERSON IN PRISON THAT CRITIZES THE GOVERNMENT.
The government is so stupid, it is totally going down hill with this new law!
You criticized the Government, to jail with you!
Shhhh. The government will hear you
The Alien and Sedition acts are not constitutional!
The Alien and Sedition acts are unconstitutional because we have freedom of speech and press. This law makes us not have these rights. People are allowed to say what they want about the government and allowed to print it out for the world because it is their opion.
The Alien and Sedition act is unconstitutional! Massachusetts said states are not allowed to say laws are uncostitutional but we acutually can.
The Democratic republic reacted by writing articles and letters against the law and the federlists.
