The 4th Amendment of the Bill of Rights

What the Bill of Rights Means to Me

Hi! I am Anna Dubinkin. I am originally from Russia, but I just became a United States citizen. I have learned a lot about this country. I want to help others learn about the protections that the Bill of Rights gives them. Some countries do not have these protections for their citizens, so we Americans should not take them for granted! Let's take a look at one of the 10 Amendments that protects people privacy and property: the 4th Amendment.

4th Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
