This is the seventh chapter of Red Scare.

From the beginning of the chapter:
The January raids were by no means meant by the Bureau to be the end of its campaign against alien radicals. On February 14, special agents under the personal command of J. Edgar Hoover raided the Italian anarchist group L'Era Nuova in Paterson, New Jersey, and held 29 of its members for deportation. A week later, Hoover suggested in an internal memorandum that alien members of the Industrial Workers of the World should be arrested and deported in waves of 500 until the organization was broken up. Yet within a few months during the spring of 1920 the Red Scare suddenly subsided, the public excitement and political rhetoric died down, and the Bureau of Investigation was forced to abandon all plans for further raids and had to defend its recent actions instead. Whereas the Bureau had successfully taken advantage of the anarchist bombs in June 1919 to obtain congressional funding for its anti-radical campaign, its attempt to whip up an anti-communist hysteria after the Wall St. bomb on September 16, 1920, which killed 33 and wounded more than 200, made no headway. At the same time, while the radical issue had been used to great effect to discredit social unrest and had advanced the careers of Palmer and Poindexter in 1919, they both failed to gain their parties' nominations and the Republican President-elect, Warren G. Harding, declared that "too much has been said about Bolshevism in America".
