Amendment XIVAmendment 14 Defines citizenship and citizens' rights. African-Americans became citizens. Also, 14th Amendment is important due to the "Due Process Clause", and "Equal Protection Clause", which prohibits States from discrimination. Later 14th Amendment will be used to end discrimination in the South.
Later on, the Supreme Court protected this right for the children of immigrants and the right of Native Americans to become citizens also was protected later on.
