Yes there are two citizens (with privileges and immunities) under the Constitution since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment


Since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, there are two citizens under the Constitution of the United States of America with privileges and immunities which are not the same. They are a citizen of the United States, under Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, and a citizen of the several States, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution. A citizen of a State is recognized under both of these provisions, however, privileges and immunities for a citizen of a State are not in the Constitution of the United States of America, but rather in the constitution and laws of a particular State.
