These were the two parts of the alien acts. The alien acts made it difficult for foreigners to become citizens. Also they made it so you could throw someone in jail if you had reasoning.
Yes! They have been passed!
The alien act also makes it so they can now throw anyone in jail at anytime! Does that mean i will be sent to jail??
If they believe that you are dangerous then they will just throw you in jail. Otherwise your safe.
Yes! Let's get rid of these alien and sedition acts!
I hate these acts get rid of them!!! we are the democratic republic!
All i said was that, the government was stupid and didn't know what it's doing.
Well, didn't you know the sedition acts made it a crime to criticize the government? If you do, you get punished.
We hate the french! We love the English!!
Lets develop acts against them because we need to support then English while they are going against the villainous french.
I claim that this is unconstitutional and must be stopped!!
Congress can't make a law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press!
The Virginia and Kentucky resolutions
It was resolves passed declaring the alien and sedition laws unconstitutional. If a state believed that a law was unconstitutional the state had the right to say it isn't constitutional and not obey the law.
