THE COMPROMISE OF 1850 AND THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW BY ARAN, CASEY, MICHAEL, AND SYDNEY
We cannot allow the admission of another slave state right now, especially when much of it is crossing the Missouri Compromise border!
If you are willing to give up your claim on New Mexico and have Texas be within borders that we set, we will allow you in and take on your national debt.
We are a newly independent nation and we want to join the Union. The Rio Grande River is now recognized as the border between Mexico and the US because of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo , and we are a part of that as is the claim we have of much New Mexico.
FUGITIVE SLAVE ACT/END OF SLAVE TRADE IN DC
All the issues at hand must be handled in this legislature or there will not be peace in America especially with the North and South.
We want California to be a free state! Also, how about ending slave trade in D.C?
We need to own more land after the trade with Mexico in the past to grow into a more powerful nation. How about we balance the land among the North and South while gaining a better economy from the California Gold Rush?
We can't upset the balance of slavery, if new states continue to establish! However, I suppose that could work.
UTAH/NEW MEXICO ESTABLISHING OWN SLAVE RULES
We let them choose to either be free or not based on the popular sovereignty of the people who want to live in these territories. If most people want slavery it will be a slave state, if more people want freedom it will be free.
What are we going to do with the land of Utah and New Mexico with California being free should they be free or slave states?
THE IMPACT OF THE COMPROMISE OF 1850 AND THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW
The South strengthen the Fugitive Slave Law, and the North gained California as a free state. Texas ended up losing teritory, but was compensated for the debt with 10 million dollars. Slave trade was prohibited in D.C. However, slavery was not.
