I don't believe that any portion of the COTUS applies to the states. It is an agreement between the people and a National government.

The states all have their own constitutions. The state constitutions are the standard by which state laws should be judged. Federal laws should be judged by the COTUS.

If the COTUS applies to the states, what would be the purpose of the state consitutions, asks I, somewhat rhetorically.
