The 14th amendment defined citizenship.


The three best amendments for slaves were the 13th, 14th, and 15th. The 13th said that slavery was illegal. The 14th amendment defined citizenship. The 15th amendment talks about voting. The 14th amendment to the United States Constitution was important to immigrants, because they were no longer citizens, because they weren't born n the United States.
