Best Answer

The Sedition Act was passed by a Federalist led legislature to curb criticism of the Adams Administration. Though allegedly passed to assure national security, historians agree they were mainly passed to silence the Federalist opposition that was coming from the Democratic Republican party. French immigrants supported the Democratic Republicans. The Act was repealed by the Naturalization Act of 1802.
