A citizen of a State, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution, before the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, was entitled to privileges and immunities of a citizen of the United States. However, with the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, privileges and immunities of a citizen of the United States were transferred from Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution to Section 1, Clause 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Thus, Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 was modified with the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution no longer applies to a citizen of the United States. Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment does. Now Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution applies to privileges and immunities of a citizen of the several States; that is, a citizen of all the several States, generally.

A citizen of the several States has both fundamental privileges and immunities, and, as a citizen of a State, has common privileges and immunities with those citizens of a particular State he or she is in.
