Only Texas can legally do that.
Interesting. What legally allows Texas while prohibiting the rest of us?

Texas was its own country for a while. It gave up its sovereignty when it joined the Union, but reserved the right to leave. I don't believe that has changed, the Civil War notwithstanding. As such, Texas has considerably different circumstances than the rest of the states.

In answer to your question: The treaty between the Republic of Texas and the United States which admitted Texas to the Union, different terms than the admission of other states.
