"Amendment XIII Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

This is the thirteenth amendment. It ended slavery in the civil war. But it says slavery is still legal if you commit a crime. I do not agree with this

I do not agree with this. But prisoners are not USA citizens they are slaves.

the thirteenth amendment abolished slavery except if you have committed a crime.

"Constitution abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. In Congress,"

Slavery is only allowed in the usa if you have committed a crime.

The thirteenth amendment ended slavery in the civil war except if you commit a crime then you can legally become a slave. I do not agree with this

Depends on the criminal. I wouldn’t let a felon convict vote.
