This amendment was significant because it paved the way for equal rights for all americans and how they are citizens.
Any man or woman born in or naturalized in the United States is a citizen by right. They shall not be deprived life liberty or property and are given the right to equal protection.
Eventually the state thought this amendment was necessary because it went against the constitution and didnt grant people their rights.
The fourteenth Amendment was brought around by the court case Plessy vs. Ferguson and the way he was treated and given unequal protection. This amendment changed the way other people were treated because of their race.
With the 14th amendment around everyone can be a citizen black, white, or brown!
