Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said a recent Fox News story reporting the county did not honor 65 requests for detainers by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is false.
The sheriff said the report, issued by ICE out of Washington, D.C. and reported on Fox, claimed the county was given the requests between Feb. 4 and Feb. 10.
The county only received 25 requests in the entire month of February, Youngblood said Thursday, and it honored every one of them.
He said he's not sure where ICE got those numbers.
"We had zero detainers that we didn't honor," he said.
