    The 14th Amendment states in Section 1 “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 law was put into action as of July 9, 1868 and both parties agreed to this and it was passed. The amendment was design to give citizenship to any freed slaves so that he or she may own land and/or employ anyone.
