"The Constitution affected immigration and naturalization in a few ways:
It limited the power of the federal government to control who could immigrate to the United States and granted that power to the states. This led to a great deal of inconsistency in how immigration was regulated from state to state.
The Constitution gave citizenship to all persons born or naturalized in the United States, which opened up opportunities for people from all over the world to become American citizens.
The Constitution set forth a process for immigrants and citizens to become naturalized citizens, which made it easier for more people to become Americans."
