Slave trade became an important issue during the Constitutional Convention. Southern slaveholders did not want the Congress to take the power over slave trade while controlling foreign affairs. So they only let the Congress have power over trade, excluding slave trade, for next twenty years.
The fundamental issue that was raised at the constitutional convention was slave trade and human rights abuses. Those were the issues that were strife then.
The Constitutional Convention said that congress could not ban slave trade until 1808.
Counting slaves as part of the population and slave trade regulations.

great compromise.3/5 compromise and slave trade compromise
During the Constitutional Convention the issue of slavery came to be a point of discussion. The Southern states which had slaves fought off attempts to abolish slavery. A compromise was made. It was agreed that the slave trade would end in twenty years.
The Constitutional convention and Compromises include the three-fifths compromise, the Great Compromise was between the small states, the Commerce Compromise, Slave Trade Compromise, and the election of the President.
The goal was to stabilize the government. the ways the did this is by solving the 3/5 compromise, the slave trade compromise, the debate over ratification, and the constitutional convention.
The slave trade compromise was an agreement during the Constitutional Convention of 1787, protecting the interests of slaveholders, that forbid Congress the power to act on the slave trade for twenty years. This meant that slaves would be mostly a state power.
The constitution should prohibit the states from participating in the international slave trade.
none of them were "allies." But overall, it was big verses small states for slave trade and representation issues.
The Constitutional Convention left the slave trade untaxed and untouched. Delegates from the southern States were naturally wary about the prospect of Congress being able to regulate America's interstate and foreign trade. They were afraid that the North would use its influence in Congress to levy taxes on the slave trade and the cotton trade. The delegates from the South pushed for, and won, a compromise on the matter: the Commerce and Slave Trade Compromise. This agreement made it so Congress could regulate interstate and foreign trade, but could not tax exports. This meant that cotton exports from the South would not be affected. In addition, Congress was forbidden from regulating the slave trade for 20 years.
they voted to wait 20 years before dealing with the issue, but they didnt deal with it for much longer than that EDIT: they said that the south would receive its slaves back if they were caught in the north, but that the govt owned the slave trade. the govt would stop the slave trade in 20 years. that was the agreement
In order to establish a new Constitution, many compromises had to be made at the Constitutional Convention. Some of the most important compromises to American history were the election of a president, slave trade, commerce compromise, and the three-fifths compromise.
Slave trade wasn't really addressed, but in counting slaves as part of the population a slave was 3/4 of a person. The Southern states still depended on slaves ( VA slave population in 1790 was 35%) and this will grow when the cotton gin was invented.
this is off my book so... northerners agreed that congress could not outlaw the slave trade for at least 20 years. after that, congress could regulate the slave trade if it wished. northerners also agreed that no state could stop a fugitive slave from being returned to and owner who claimed that slave.
It was delayed because of the dispute how to count the enslaved people. it was because of the " Slave Trade".
The compromise that was reached over the issue of slave trade was "Three-Fifths Compromise's.
