The Eleventh Amendment.

"The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State."

This is an extremely cut-and-dry amendment. This amendment was written to protect the states from having foreign countries bring a suit upon them or from having citizens of another state sue them.

This video clearly explains the eleventh amendment and why it is important to our nation.

This is basically some random guy on youtube explaining the eleventh amendment. It was pretty difficult to try to find a second form of media on the eleventh amendment so this will have to do!
