41. DOJ could order US Marshals to stand down pending court appeals

Iím assuming it would be US Marshals who would be the ones to transport any TX reps back to Tx?

Not sure how extradition works between DC and the states, but I donít think itís a slam dunk that Abbott can forcibly bring them back.

Hereís some info:

https://koehlerlaw.net/other-offenses/extradition/

If the fugitive contests extradition, the court will schedule a hearing within 30 days. At the hearing, the court will order the fugitiveís return to the demanding state provided that the prosecution can show three things: (1) the fugitive is in fact the person sought by the demanding state, (2) the fugitive is charged with a crime in that state, and (3) the fugitive was in the demanding state at the time the offense was committed.


Since the Reps werenít in TX at the time the arrest warrants were issued, they might be able to contest extradition successfully. In any case, they can delay for 30 days, if and when they are apprehended.
