What unintended effect did the fugitive slave act have on northerners?

The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 intensified opposition to slavery in the North by requiring northerners to assist in the capture and return of escaped slaves. This led to heightened tensions between pro- and anti-slavery factions, as many people in the North resented being forced to participate in the enforcement of slavery. The act also sparked a wave of resistance and defiance, with some northerners aiding fugitive slaves in their escape.

What was the importance of the fugitive slave act?

This act was made for the south to be able to go to the north and search for their run-away slaves and to be able to go into a northerners house and search for them. Sometimes the slaves would hide in the barn with out the northerners knowing and the northerners would get in trouble for it and they did not care if they were telling the truth about not hiding slaves or not they would still get in trouble.
