1. Dear Pilar Baker, I regret to say that you could be arrested at Manilia airport and extradited back to the US if there is a warrant of arrest out in the USA for you. This is because the Philippines is an old colony of the USA and links are close. So, you run the risk that if you turn up in the Philippines they will look through the records they have from the US and set in motion proceedings to extradite you. So I would suggest you either seek to deal with the warrant of arrest or else consider going to an alternative location which is not so close to the USA.
