#1 The US-Mexico extradition treaty, for example, lists a number of extraditable offenses, such as:
- Violations of the customs laws
- Offenses against copyright or intellectual property
- Offenses related to international trade and transfers of funds or valuable metals
- Offenses relating to prohibition "unfair transactions"
We're not exactly talking about violent criminals here; these rules so opaque that just about everyone on the planet is in violation of some offense.
...and sometime it involves conspiracy involving reckless disregard of life and safety and leading to significant death count in that country. You really would deny an extradition request for Mr Holder from Mexico?
