The Alien Enemies Act while similar to the previous act, gave the president authority to deport or imprison any male citizen of a hostile nation during war as long as they were over the age of fourteen. Lastly the Sedition Act restricted free speech among the people which violated people’s protection granted under the first amendment of the constitution. However during this time the practice of the Judicial Review was still in its early stages and therefore not always effective.

Charles’ ideas inspired the French to create the Declaration of the Rights of Man and to make a better government after overthrowing the monarchy. Montesquieu also influenced the American Revolution in a massive way. He warned, “Were the executive power not to have a right or restraining the encroachments of the legislative body, the latter would become despotic; for as it might arrogate to itself what authority it pleased, it would soon destroy all the other powers.” The Founding Fathers took his advice on the separation of powers when drafting the Constitution. They formed the independent parts of the government we have today which is the executive(President), legislative(Congress) and judiciary(the Supreme Court) branches in the federal Constitution.
