Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say they arrested 93 sex offenders living in New York between June 17 and June 28.

Officials say 67 of them are listed as child predators.

It was all part of a coordinated effort called the Sex Offender Alien Removal operation, or SOAR.

Those arrested hail from 20 different countries, including the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Afghanistan.

ICE said its enforcement efforts give top priority to cases involving undocumented immigrants who pose a threat to national security and public safety.

That includes sex offenders and members of transnational gangs.
