    So does every Southern State.

    The U.S. Constitution does not provide for state secession.

    Experts say the only way to legally secede would be to change the federal Constitution, which requires the approval of Congress and 38 states.

    There was a time when married people couldn't get a divorce but laws have been known to change and now you can. The U.S. Constitution doesn't speak to state secession. The Supreme Court has ruled on the subject and laid out the ways in which that could happen. The Soviet Union fell apart, Brexit, Quebec has tried to break away from Canada and lost by an extremely close margin, several states in the U.S. have tried to separate for many years with the latest being Calexit. Fighting for independence is not unheard of, especially in America. Trump is proving that the unthinkable and what we think is impossible is possible. The Constitution is constantly being challenged. Before it was the UNITED STATES who did the land belong to? Never say never.

    What would a modern-day secession from the United States look like?

    1) The US military, which, for all the contention, is still immensely subservient to the Federal Government, and particular, really does do exactly what the civilian government says (even if it grumbles a lot while doing so), would be deployed to the states in question. It would seize all strategic points of value, and disarm any resistance encountered. You're living in a fantasy world if you think there would be any resistance that could stop this.

    Can a US state secede from the Union?

    Not any more. It was in doubt before the Civil War, but after that horrible event two things now stand as a reality:
    * The Federal Government will go to war, regardless of current political thought, to keep the Union together. There are no collection of even 10 states that have remotely sufficient weaponry to secede without the Union destroying their infrastructure in under a day, causing mass starvation and thus requiring that state to sue for peace with the Union (that is: we've become accustomed to water, electricity, etc. The moment it's removed, societal collapse ensues). Beyond that, the blockade and "legitimizing" of that seceding state (no trade, no exports, no currency) immediately makes it a no-go.

    I belong to an organization who's believes that reparations could include handing over the five southern slave states to Blacks.

    I'm all in for seceding from the union. As mentioned above their will be severe consequences. Can we deal with these consequences.

    Yes, and.....?
    Each state that is successful in seceding will have the national guard removed by the federal government.
    Come on James, you know what the Civil War was about the Union. States can't just start leaving the union, that could lead to another civil war.

    White folk need direction. That's why the constitution was written.
    Personally, I wouldn't want to live in a seceded state with white folk and no federal oversight.
