    This made Palmer even more hostile to labor unions, political radicals, and anarchists than he already was.

    Palmer's home was bombed in June. By the end of 1919 he initiated a campaign to arrest and deport 10,000 foreign citizens who were known leftists. He had opponents in government however, and only 500 were actually sent out of the United States.

    This was part of the first "Red Scare", in the aftermath of the Communist Revolution in Russia, which took place in 1917. Many in the U.S. feared a similar uprising, and events like the bombing of Wall Street by anarchists, in 1919, helped to keep the tensions high.
