    Because the illegal immigrant is a specific person, known to be real so the ‘a’ (sometimes referred to as the personal ‘a’) shows this to be the case.

    It is used with known people and sometimes pets, especially if the speaker wants to signal a close relationship with the pet, eg. viewing them as part of the family.  It can even sometimes be used with places eg. your country of birth and once again signals a close or personal relationship.
