Hello,

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you what you would most like to hear. If yours is a felony warrant, it should turn up on a passport scan. You could be turned around and arrested at the border. A misdemeanor warrant would be less likely to be reported since no state extradites for misdemeanors, but there are no guarantees even there.
