This was a source of cheap labour, but many colonists were against it. Benjamin Franklin called it the equivalent of the colonies sending all their rattlesnakes to England. The second Act expanded on the first to give more courts the power to sentence offenders to transportation and also pronounced sentence of death on any who managed to escape and were found].
