Importance Of Repealing The 14th Amendment

Good Essays
A few politicians argue that the only way to fix this problem would be to repeal the fourteenth amendment. The amendment was made after the Civil War and is very important to everyday society. This amendment gives Americans equal protection under the law. This was a vital amendment and it continues to be one to this day. To change an amendment, Congress has to propose a new amendment to change the Constitution. Over 11,000 attempts have been made to try and change the Constitution, while over twenty-seven have made it through successfully (Gorham). So that means that repealing the fourteenth amendment is never going to happen as long as our country is a democracy.
