All people born or naturalised in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction are citizens of the United States and the state in which they live.
[U.S. Constitution] Fourteenth Amendment
All people born or naturalised in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction are citizens of both the United States and the state in which they live. No State shall make or enforce any law that abridges 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 shall any State deny equal protection of the laws to any person within its jurisdiction.
Representatives should be assigned to the several states in proportion to their populations, taking into account the total number of people in each state, except Indians who are not taxed. However, when the right to vote in any election for the selection of Electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, executive and judicial officers of a State, or members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State who are twenty-one years of age and citizens of the United States, or is in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion or other crime, the basis or representation t
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or an Elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States or any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State Legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the United States Constitution, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebuff. However, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, Congress may remove such a handicap.
The legality of the United States’ public debt, including obligations accumulated for the payment of pensions and rewards for services in defeating insurgency or rebellion, should not be called into doubt. However, neither the United States nor any State shall undertake or pay any debt or obligation committed in furtherance of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or liberation of any slave; all such debts, obligations, and claims will be considered unlawful and invalid.
The Congress shall have the authority to enact necessary legislation to implement the provisions of this article.”
