Constraints on Latitude of Treaties
In all instances in which a state treaty or other formalization of
international relation conflicts with law of this nation (including
its constitutions), law of this nation takes absolute precedence.
No state treaty, state action, or other formalization of international
relation can bind, coerce, or encourage the people of another nation
or nations to pursue, enforce, or be subject to, a policy, practice,
or arrangement, that would be unlawful if pursued or enforced in this
nation. Furthermore, no state treaty or other formalization of
international relation can bind or encourage the people of this nation
to pursue or enforce a policy, practice, or arrangement, that would be
unlawful if pursued or enforced in the corresponding foreign nation or
