The U.S. Congress (the country's law-making body) dealt with the issue of slavery as new states were admitted and new territories acquired by arriving at the Compromise of 1850, which allowed Texas to be admitted to the Union as a slave state and California to be admitted as a free state (slavery was prohibited). Voters in New Mexico and Utah would decide the slavery question themselves (a method called popular sovereignty). In addition, the slave trade would be prohibited in Washington, D.C., and a strict fugitive slave law would be enforced nationally.
These actions of the US Congress affected the tensions between the North and the South proving that the Congress could not easily resolve the nation's deep-seated differences over the issue of slavery rather it would take the Civil War (1861–65) to decide the question of slavery.
