Re: Live aboard legal address

Here is something I found working on this, lets keep this discussion going:

Freedom of movement under United States law

Freedom of movement under United States law is governed primarily by the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the United States Constitution which states, "The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States." As far back as the circuit court ruling in Corfield v. Coryell, 6 Fed. Cas. 546 (1823), the Supreme Court recognized freedom of movement as a fundamental Constitutional right.


U.S. High Court Reverses California Welfare Statute / Lower benefits for newcomers called illegal bias

"Citizens of the United States, whether rich or poor, have the right to choose to be citizens of the state where they reside," wrote Justice John Paul Stevens in the court's decision. "The states, however, do not have any right to select their citizens."

He added that "the right to travel embraces the citizen's right to be treated equally" and assures new residents the same privileges and immunities.


Let the discussion continue...
