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 nations.
