What was the Alien Act? It authorized the arrest and deportation of immigrants who criticized the government. It limited the federal government to powers explicitly granted by the Constitution. It declared the Sedition Act unconstitutional and hinted that the states had the power to nullify federal laws. It allowed juries to acquit defendants who could prove the literal truth of their statements.
