The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 4
Section 2 - Paragraph 2

A person charged in any state with treason, felony, or other crime, who shall flee justice, and be found in another state, shall, on demand of the executive authority of the state from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the state having jurisdiction of the crime.

This prevents a criminal from fleeing from one jurisdiction to another in order to escape prosecution. Notice though that it is the Executive Authority of the State from which he fled, not the Federal Government that has the power to have him returned. The Federal Government has no authority to prosecute any Sovereign Citizen for any crimes except Counterfeiting the Securities of the United States, Treason, Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations, and even then, only within the strict definitions contained herein.
