The New Alien: John Adams

Though many may see president Adams as a strong leader, he has done the one thing our nation forbids, gone AGAINSt the constitution. He has passed, "The Alien and Sedition Acts,"and yes he just called immigrants aliens! The new "law" states that immigrants have to wait longer to become a citizen, and allows the president to arrest any immigrants he believes to be disloyal. While many are aware of the freedom of speech and press, stated in the first amendment, Adams has seemed to forgotten this, because the new act also doesn't permit "harmful" talk against the government. I guess it's safe to say Adams never learned the term, "Sticks and Stones." The law may have been passed, but we all know it stands for the complete opposite of the word, "constitutional."
