FULL FAITH & CREDIT

acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the
Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts,
records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.
PRIVILEGES & IMMUNITIES OF CITIZENS; INTERSTATE RENDITION
Section 2. The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges
and immunities of citizens in the several states.
A person charged in any state with treason, felony, or other crime, who
shall flee from justice, and be found in another state, shall on demand of
the executive authority of the state from which he fled, be delivered up,
to be removed to the state having jurisdiction of the crime.
No person held to service or labor in one state, under the laws thereof,
escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation
therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered
up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due. [1}
ADMISSION OF NEW STATES INTO THE UNION
Section 3. New states may be admitted by the Congress into this union; but
no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any
other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states,
or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states
concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and
regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the
United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to
prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular state.
REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT; PROTECTION OF THE STATES
Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a
republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against
invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when
the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
 This Clause has been affected by Amendment XIII.
