How long does California have to pick up my fiance in Texas for parole violation?

Saginaw, TX |

My fiance was arrested for a parole violation in California which he didn't know there was even a warrant out. He thought all was done. How long can Texas hold him before they can release him if California does not come and get him?

Here is the relevant law:

He will need a lawyer in California.
