I believe your question has been answered
by the cases which have adjudicated the
Privileges and Immunities Clause at 4:2:1
(NOT the one in the so-called 14th amendment).
When you travel to another State of the Union,
you enjoy there all the Privileges and Immunities
already enjoyed by Citizens of that State.
"When in Rome, do as the Romans do."
When in Michigan, do as the Citizens of Michigan do :)
As for your question about the status of the Michigan
Constitution when you are in California, that body of
law is treated as "foreign" law which must be proven
just like any other factual matter.
Hence, the Diversity Clause, to determine which law(s),
if any, will provide the rule of decision.
