ABSTRACT

Abridged Sketch of Extradition To and From the United States   [open pdf - 511KB]

"'Extradition' is the formal surrender of a person by a State to another State for prosecution or punishment. Extradition to or from the United States is a creature of treaty. The United States has extradition treaties with over a hundred nations, although there are many countries with which it has no extradition treaty. International terrorism and drug trafficking have made extradition an increasingly important law enforcement tool. [...] This is an abbreviated version of CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report 98-958, Extradition To and From the United States: Overview of the Law and Recent Treaties, by Michael John Garcia and Charles Doyle, without the appendices, footnotes, and citations to authority found in the longer report."
