By reading up on the law stackexchange website, I know that for California to seek extradition of any fugitives from a foreign country, it needs to go through the State Department and the Department of Justice.
But what happens if the alleged crime is not a crime under federal law? Would the federal agencies refuse to pass on the extradition request to the intended foreign governments?
In general, what are the laws, regulations, guidelines regarding whether or not to send the extradition request when a fugitive is solely wanted by California?
In this question, California can be any other US state.
