help me please 14th amendment

explain how the court has interpreted the fourteenth amendment to apply the bill of rights to the states.

i have visited all the websites but i'm not sure of what they are saying. i was wondering if someone could summarize in simpler words.

here's what i came with:

the 14th amend appy the bill of rights to the states because it includes the "due process" and "equal protection" clause. it requires states to provide equal protection under the law to all persons and not just citizens.

did i answer the question or is all this just the background


Yes, you answered it correctly. You might want to expand some, as the same eleven words in the fourteenth amendment are in the fifth amendment.
You may want to check your capitalization and grammar before handing the work in.
