The enforcement of Intolerable Acts was the British trying to regain control over the colonies again-because of the Boston Tea Party they saw they were losing it. (Boycotting British goods, harassing British soldiers, & starting public protests.)
Also other colonies where starting to rebel against British rule just like Boston was. Instead of just simply separating Massachusetts from the other colonies, Britain tried to abuse the people of the colony such as the sons of liberty.
