XYZ Affair and Alien Sedition Acts
This storyboard does not have a description.
What madness! Go to Paris and talk with the minister of foreign affairs! Hurry!
Mr. President! The French are seizing our ships and Federalists want war! What shall we do?
You may talk to the minister if you loan $10 million dollars and pay a bribe of $250,000.
Nonsense! No, no, not a sixpence!
Millions for defense, not one cent for tribute!
We are cutting off ties with France and that is final!
Hm...Most of the Democratic-Republicans are aliens...I must stop them from saying bad things about me!
Mr.President! Democratic -Republicans are writing criticisms about you because of our actions with the French!
You two are in jail because of your criticisms about me. I will not tolerate it!
Those stupid Alien and Sedition Acts! They are violating my rights! They must be repealed!
The Democratic-Republicans tried to fight the acts, but did not succeed until two years later when they took control of the government and repealed the acts.
We have states' rights and the federal government cannot interfere with them! Your acts violate the Constitution!
