    These laws included new powers to deport foreigners as well as making it harder for new immigrants to vote. It extended the time it took to become a citizen from 5 to 14 years, the President could deport anyone he deemed dangerous to this country, the President can deport anyone from a country the US was at war with at the time, made it a crime to speak out against the US.
