What states are non-extradition?
Any state will allow extradition of a fugitive to another state. For extradition to occur, the governor of the state wanting the fugitive returned must make a request of the governor where the fugitive is residing or being held. This request is called a "Governor's Warrant." The state holding the fugitive can refuse to release the fugitive if the governor of that state refuses to allow it. This rarely happens. If the fugitive doesn't waive extradition (doesn't agree to be transported back to the state that wants him), a court in the state holding him holds an extradition hearing, where the fugitive argues why he should not be extradited. In the rare event that the judge is convinced that the fugitive should not be returned to the state holding the warrant, he makes a recommendation to the governor to not allow extradition. Successful arguments against extradition have been based on the fugitive's claim that the charges in the state holding the warrant are baseless, that he is a victim of prosecutorial misconduct, or that he will be be killed or otherwise harmed if he is extradited. The ultimate decision on whether or not to extradite is the governor's alone. If the governor in the state holding the fugitive refuses to permit extradition, the fugitive is a free man so long as He commits no crimes in that state, He doesn't leave the state (if he does and is captured in another state, the process begins anew in that state), The governor doesn't change his mind, or A new governor with a different point of view takes office. Some countries do not have extradition treaties with the United States, or will only permit extradition under certain conditions. For instance, the United States has an extradition treaty with Mexico, but Mexico will allow extradition only if the person extradited is not in jeopardy of the death penalty. If the prosecutor in the case intends to seek the death penalty, Mexico will not permit extradition.
