    I did a report on this last year in AP American Studies.

    A series of controversial raids by the U.S. Justice and Immigration Departments from 1918 - 1921 in the United States. The raids are named afterr Alexander Mitchell Palmer the United States Attorney General at the time who led the raids. J Edgar Hoover was also part of it as head of the FBI at the time. Most basically anyone who was accused of being anti-american or being a communist was arrested and held as a spy. If you want more go to Wikipedia.com and type in Palmer Raids.
