The 14th amendment says that if you are born in the US you are a citizen. Before

this amendment slaves born in the US were not citizens. Slavery was allowed by the original US Constitution but was not part of any amendment. Also, children born in the United States to citizens of other countries would not automatically be US citizens before this amendment was ratified.
