Law Docs - View Constitution: Article 4, Section 2

Short Version -- This is a summary of the important issues covered in this section of the US Constitution.
  • Citizens traveling from state to state are entitled to the same privileges as citizens of the state they are visiting.
  • If a person charged with a crime flees to another state, the governor of the state where the crime was committed can demand the person's return.

Long Version -- This is the text of the Actual US Constitution

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.
