CENTRAL ISLIP, NY – Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Long Island, New York, Sub-Office arrested 23 sexual predators during a six-day period ending Nov. 2 on Long Island in an enforcement effort dubbed “Operation SOAR” (Sex Offender Alien Removal).

In the course of Operation SOAR, ERO deportation officers apprehended 23 individuals with past criminal convictions ranging from sexual abuse to rape. Several of those arrested are registered sexual offenders. Each taken into custody is currently being detained pending the completion of removal proceedings, criminal prosecution, or removal from the United States.

“When we talk about the safety of our communities, it should not be politics, it should be common sense. We arrested nearly two dozen convicted sex offenders this past week, including many who conducted heinous acts against children, and could have been turned over to ICE instead of released back into our neighborhoods,” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ERO New York. “The rule of law should not be blatantly disregarded by the people elected and paid to serve the public because of their political view, especially if it means we allow those who sexually violated children, and those who have no legal status, to remain in the country.”
Arrests include:

In Wheatley Heights, a 37-year-old previously removed Honduran national and registered sexual offender with a prior conviction of sexual misconduct: person has intercourse with another without consent. The victim was a 15-year-old child;
