Plenty of them down here. Mostly a good bit darker. Especially the ones under the bug zapper.

Albino Jap beetle maybe? Seems like everything is in place but the color. Maybe at this time in history it's a racist Jap beetle laugh

The front feet look like it is in the Beetle Family Scarabaeidae.
dung beetles and they use those front claws to dig and cut, cant make out the antennae
it is not a invasive as some have indicated
