The 14th Amendment was adopted on July 9, 1868 as one of the Reconstruction Amendments
The Citizenship clause overruled the Dred Scott v. Sanford decision of 1857, which held that Blacks could not be citizens of the United States.
The Due Process Clause prohibits state and local governments from depriving people of life, liberty, or property without due process.
The Equal Protection Clause requires each state to provide equal protection under the law to all people within its jurisdiction. This clause became the basis for the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954, in which the Supreme called for the dismantling of racial segregation.
The 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution has recently come under fire.
From what I understand, it has come the under fire because of illegal immigration. Of course, that is a whole bunch of poppycock.
Those who want to repeal the 14th Amendment are not doing it because of illegal immigration, but have ulterior motives. The true motives are racist, discriminatory and designed to violate the rights of others.
The attempt to repeal the 14th Amendment is a covert act of racism and discrimination under the guise of immigration reform.
I have mentioned in previous correspondence how certain ex Republican officials and some current Republican officials have discriminated against me. I have complained in the past about discriminatory practices against me.
I recently mailed missives to various officials about a court case in which I invoked the Fourteenth Amendment. I guess some Republican Officials got a hold of that missive, and it is because I invoked the Fourteenth Amendment that certain officials want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment. The attempt at the repeal of the 14th Amendment is really an attempt to aid and abett a corrupt company and attorneys who want to violate my civil rights.
Mention of repeal of the Fourteenth only started after my missive. I know those who want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment will say it is not because they want to violate my rights, but the timing is not coincidental.
And to President Obama; can you imagine the 14th Amendment being repealed, and the Republicans, then claim you are not a citizen because you father was not born in the United States.
Repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment is illegal.
Repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment is corrupt.
Repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment is a violation of human rights.
Those who want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment, don't want me to be a citizen.
Those who want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment want to deny my right to defend myself in a court of law.
Those who want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment, don't want me to have due process.
Those who want to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment, are acting like racist.
Do not repeal the Fourteenth Amendment.
