    One more time The bill of rights protects rights.
    The Constitution tells the government what it can and cannot do.

    they are together but both have a differant purpose. Which seperates the two.

    One more time. The BoR protects the rights of non-citizens
    The Bor is not seperate from the constitution
    The constitution does more than just tell the govt what it can and cannot do
