This is the sixth chapter of Red Scare.

From the beginning of the chapter:
The dramatic mass arrests and deportations in late 1919 and early 1920 of up to an estimated 10,000 suspected alien anarchists and Communists, popularly known as the Palmer raids, marked the climax of the Red Scare. The description of the raids also constitutes the main part of most accounts of the Bureau’s role during the Red Scare. It might be argued, however, that the discussion of the Bureau’s role in the raids was derailed from the beginning by focusing on the issue of whether the federal agents used illegal methods. This tradition might be said to have started with a report prepared by the liberal National Popular Government League in May 1920 and signed by twelve prominent lawyers, among others Felix Frankfurter, Zechariah Chafee and Roscoe Pound, which was entitled To the American People. Report Upon the Illegal Practices of the United States Department of Justice. It accused the Department of violating the aliens’ constitutional rights by making arrests and conducting searches and seizures without warrants, denying counsel to the detainees, keeping them imprisoned indefinitely on excessive high bail, and by mistreating them. Two congressional hearings followed in 1920 and 1921, and both focused on the Bureau’s alleged illegal methods.
