What is Extradition?
Extradition refers to the process whereby a fugitive, who is being detained in one jurisdiction (whether it’s a municipality, a state or even a country), is wanted by another jurisdiction, and that person is being held as a courtesy to face her or his outstanding charges in the jurisdiction that issued the fugitive warrant.
Extradition is not a matter of constitutional rights of a citizen; rather it is a matter of comity between sovereigns.
In extradition one government entity is merely being asked to honor the request of another government entity, by providing a courtesy hold for a wanted individual until such time as that individual can be picked-up by the requesting authority.
You may or may not have been arrested and face new charges in the jurisdiction that is holding you for extradition on a fugitive warrant but that is not necessary. If you have a fugitive warrant and you are run through a law enforcement data base for any reason then you can simply be held merely on the open extradition warrant with no new charges.
