Officials announced a major roundup of sex offenders across Long Island Tuesday.

It said those arrested included nationals from Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Dominican Republic as well as other immigrants were from Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico and Peru.

"Operation SOAR", the acronym of which stands for Sex Offender Alien Removal, and which ended on Aug 3., was part of an effort to eradicate foreign nationals who were sex offenders living in the Nassau or Suffolk County areas of Long Island, according to an ICE press release.

Of those arrested, 12 are registered sexual offenders. "ERO officers are out there every day enforcing immigration law with targeted enforcement actions".

The Justice Department this week revealed that federal immigration courts ordered 57,069 people to leave the United States in the first six months of the Trump administration, a jump of almost 31 per cent nationally compared with the same period past year.

Deportations, however, can be hard as a measure because cases can take years to work their way through the immigration courts. "ICE will not waiver in its promise to arrest and remove criminal aliens from our neighborhoods". The original charge was sexual abuse in the first degree: sexual contact with an individual less than 11 years old.

ICE spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow said those men "either have a final order of removal" related to prior convictions and immigration offenses, "or they will go before an immigration judge" to be expelled from the United States.
