It was a bit more than that . . . "No state shall deny the equal protection of the laws to any citizen" is a pretty sweeping ruling.
It's cute how they pick and choose parts of the law. The fourteenth Amendment also says... and subject to the jurisdiction thereof
Which means that those pregnant Mexican mothers must enter the USA Legally First.
Also I find it odd... that we had all the Segregation Bulls**t in the early part of the 19th century when the 14th Amendment say's otherwise. 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.
I'm reading this 50 times and I don't see how a state was allowed to have 'colored people signs' or make 'black people sit in back of the bus'
Yet, we got the supreme court seeing that this clause as equal rights for gay marriage... Nice...
