In 1798, President John Adams passed the Alien and Sedition Acts containing three parts: the Alien, Sedition, and Naturalization Acts. The Alien Act allowed the president to deport any immigrant that he found dangerous to the nation; the Sedition Act made it a crime to criticize the government; and the Naturalization Act lengthened the citizenship process. All of these acts were repealed by 1802 due to all of their negative impacts and influence on society. The Alien and Sedition Acts adversely impacted the nation through the deprivation of human rights, leading to protests. The acts took away the rights declared in the first amendment: freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
In 1803, the Louisiana Purchase was completed, around the same time that Ohio became a state and Britain declared war on France in Europe (Document 4). A few years later in 1815, a clause was added to the constitution denying the purchase of new states without the approval of Congress. "No new state shall be admitted into the Union by Congress, in virtue of the power granted by the constitution, without the concurrence of two thirds of both houses..."(Document 5). This clause needed to be added so that in future situations when the chance to buy territory from other countries emerged, there was no way that the transaction could occur without going through Congress first. It is explicitly stated that a new state shall not be admitted into the union without Congressional approval and, therefore, does not allow for the future of Federalists and others who would advocate for implied powers to assume the authority to acquire new land.
One Federalist who had kept his job was Judge William Marbury. Many Republicans argued that all the appointments were aimed at federal power, and the law was unconstitutional. Marbury was appointed by John Adams to keep peace in the capital. When Jefferson took office, he ordered James Madison, who was his secretary of state, to cease the appointments. Under the Judiciary Act of 1801, Marbury sued Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789.
Because of this, Hayne believed that states should have the ability to nullify any federal law they deemed unconstitutional. In 1832, he helped to pass an ordinance in South Carolina that nullified the national tariff laws. After resigning from the senate in 1832, he attempted to build a railroad in Cincinnati, although the project ultimately failed.

The embargo Act took place during 1807. This act made any and every export illegal in the United States. This act was introduced by the third President of the United States, President Thomas Jefferson. The act was enacted by Congress of the United States. The main goal of the Embargo Act was to get Britian and France to respect all rights of Americans.
The Monroe Doctrine is one of the most influential foreign policies made by an American President in our nation’s history. It strongly defined the principle of American exclusivity and European non-interference in North and South America. In Europe, the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 marked the disintegration of the Spanish empire in the New World. Between 1815 and 1822, Argentina, Venezuela, and Chile declared their independence, and broke away from colonialism. The Monroe administration recognized Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico as independent colonies in 1822.

Even Senators and Presidents put their personal feuds above what they believe is right. After WWI, President Woodrow Wilson went to Paris to create the Treaty of Versailles, which included the League of Nations. The Treaty needed two thirds vote of the Senate to vote in favor to be ratified. America had an isolationist past and the Senate was divided into the internationalists, led by Wilson, who were in favor of the League of Nations as proposed, the reservationists, led by Senator Lodge, who wanted a treaty of some type but wanted some changes, and the irreconcilables, led by Senator Borah, who were completely opposed to the Treaty and wanted to remain isolated. Even though the Senate refused to work towards a compromise, it was Wilson’s fault the Treaty was not ratified
Preparing for the abolition of the implemented throughout 1862. December 30, 1862, the president signed "Emancipation Proclamation", announced blacks living in the territories in rebellion against the United States, "now and forever" free. The document gave impetus to the adoption of Amendment XIII (1865) to the US Constitution.

In addition, it has forced foreign countries, including the UK, do not support the Confederacy.
