A possible alien has been unwittingly arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit. Sex crimes take up much of once was ICE Homeland Security Investigations, a government agency assigned to investigate customs and immigration law breaking. But in the last two years, ICE HSI has transitioned to a national sex crimes agency, ICE SVU.

For the second time this month, an alleged sexual predator from a northern state has been arrested in Plaquemines Parish. Detectives on Sunday arrested Juan Ramon Pedraza, 61, at his home in Buras after the mother of a 6-year-old girl reported he touched the girl's genitals, according to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office.
Detectives learned that Pedraza has been on the run from Massachusetts following his 2005 arrest there for possessing child pornography. Authorities believe Pedraza has been in Plaquemines Parish since 2005...
Detectives booked Pedraza with sexual battery, molestation of a juvenile and indecent behavior with a juvenile and being a fugitive from Massachusetts. Additional charges are pending, as the investigation continues into the images that federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents found in the laptop, Becnel said.
We don't know if Juan Ramon Pedraza, also known as the Rat, is an alien or not, nor if he is illegal or not, but we know that ICE SVU considers his citizenship to be incidental to its main purpose, sex crimes.
