Can a person re-enter the USA with a Bench Warrant for gross misdemeanor charges?

The charges were pressed in Washington state...If at all possible to re-enter the USA, which states do not have extradition agreements with Washington? Thank you for your help...

Lemme 'splain US Customs law: when you enter the US, your passport is scanned and a quick NCIC check is run on you and your ID number. If Washington has issued an arrest warrant for you, it will show up on the NCIC check, and US Customs officers will take you into custody. They will contact Washington authorities to let them know you're back in the country. Now, here's where it gets interesting. Let's say the airport where you landed is in a state that does not have any interest in dealing with Washington's little bench warrant issues. Makes no difference, because you are in FEDERAL CUSTODY. I'd recommend you take care of the Washington warrant, or you'll find yourself in custody for a while until the feds decide what to do with you. - Stuart

The real question is what is the 'extradition' limits on the warrant? Some misdemeanors are "within 150 miles", some are "within this state and any adjoining state" ... some might be "West of the Mississippi river", some could be "nationwide". that is the question. If the warrant is "nationwide", you'll be arrested in any state you enter, as soon as law enforcement runs your name. The question of "which states do not have extradition agreements with Washington" is a "non-question". They all do if the warrant says so.
