On Wednesday, Roy Naim, 29, was arraigned in Brooklyn Federal Court on child pornography charges.
Naim downloaded at least three videos depicting young boys engaged in sexual acts, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Saritha Komatireddy.
The investigation and arrest of a child pornography producer in Louisiana, led federal agents to Naim.
Federal agents executed a search warrant, the indictment says, and told Naim he was not under arrest, but asked him if there was any information he wanted to share voluntarily.
According to the indictment, Naim led the agents to his computer and told them he had been viewing and downloading videos of child pornography for several years, and his a laptop contained videos of child pornography. He was then arrested.
Naim has spent much of the last few years attending rallies and lobbying politicians for so-called 'comprehensive immigration reform' legislation.
In June 2012, Naim, Time magazine ran a story on Naim's work on behalf of young illegal aliens (dubbed 'DREAMERS' by the Obama administration).
Naim, an Israeli national, is in the country illegally.
More disturbingly, Naim reportedly has regular contact with children, volunteering with a youth advocacy group and at a summer camp.
Naim has been charged with receiving child pornography. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
Judge Joan M. Azrack has ordered he be held without bail.
