§ 9103. Duty of Governor
When the executive authority of any state demands of the Governor any fugitive within the purview of section 9102 of this title and produces a copy of the commitment, decree, or other judicial process and proceedings, certified as authentic by the Governor or chief magistrate of the state whence the person so charged has filed, with an affidavit made before a proper officer showing the person to be such a fugitive, the Governor shall cause him or her to be apprehended and secured, if found in this State, and to cause immediate notice of his or her apprehension to be given to the executive authority making such demand, or to the agent of such authority appointed to receive the fugitive, and to cause the fugitive to be delivered to such agent when he or she shall appear. If such agent does not appear within 30 days from the time of the apprehension, the fugitive may be discharged. All costs and expenses incurred in apprehending, security, maintaining, and transmitting such fugitive to the state making such demand, shall be paid by such state. An agent so appointed who receives the fugitive into his or her custody shall be empowered to transport him or her to the state from which he or she has fled. The Governor is hereby vested with the power, on the application of any person interested, to demand the return to this State of any fugitive within the purview of this chapter.
