Why the 14th Amendment Exists

Because half of our country, when polled, are nativist and ignorant.

The 14th Amendment came about as a way to right an early wrong in our nation's history. It also has been the catalyst for positive growth and diversity within our culture. Without it, many people in this country would have their entire life experience rewritten. There are protections our Constitution provides and the 14th Amendment is a necessary one.

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.

Or perhaps I should be more clear. To the half that WANTS to repeal the 14th Amendment; why don't you go back to where you came from?
