The US Constitution requires the national government to "guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government" It must "protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of executive against domestic violence." It must respect the territorial integrity of each state. This is according to Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution, the national government is obligated to (a) guarantee each state a republican form of government, (b) protect each state from invasion, and (c) when asked by the state legislature - or executive if the legislature is not in session - to protect the state against "domestic violence."
