What's The Point Of The Fourteenth Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 15, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Fourteenth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it currently holds. 

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Fourteenth Amendment states…

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

 

 

This amendment was brought to fruition to protect the rights of slaves after the Civil War. It basically covers…

 

Definition of Citizenship

 

This part of the amendment states that anyone born in the United States has the rights of a citizen. Thus, ensuring that freed slaves were official U.S. citizens and given all the rights of the constitution.


Privileges & Immunities

 

This portion guarantees that states cannot take away any privileges/immunities of a citizen that are bequeathed to them within the constitution.

 

Equal Protection

This guarantees equal protection within the legal system—to make sure every person regardless of age, race, or religion is treated equally upon the law.

 

House of Representative Decision

 

This was decided when an order was made to determine how many members each state had in the House of Representatives. This made it possible for former slaves to be counted as a whole person rather than three-fifths of a person.

 

Overall, this amendment protected former slaves in maintaining access to each and every right in the constitution. Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments. 

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
