Best Answer

The Sabotage Act and the Sedition Act's were passed in 1918. These laws made it a crime to say print or write almost anything perceived as negative about the government. Such acts were considered sabotage. The government used the laws to stifle all political opposition thousands of people especially immigrants socialists pacifists and labor activists were convicted under these laws.
