While there are thousands of crimes committed by illegal aliens annually in this country, there are a few that are so heinous and devastating to the victims (or to their survivors), that they standout and become real-life advertisements for border enforcement.
What follows is a list of some of the most depraved illegal aliens apprehended in 2013:
-Illegal alien charged with killing 6-year-old Cub Scout in Texas
On Jan. 24, San Antonio police arrested Luis Enrique Landin after he reportedly hit 6-year-old Brandon Abrams as he waited on the sidewalk for the ice cream truck's daily visit.
Landin's Ford Ranger pick up truck jumped the curb and struck the little boy as he sat on his bicycle in the 9300 block of Autumn Sunrise, according to police.
A witness, Jane Withers, saw the crash from her house and immediately ran to the boy.
The impact was so great that it knocked the little boy our of his shoes.
Withers told the San Antonio Express: "I saw (Brandon) fly in the air and hit the ground. I've never seen anyone fly through the air so much. ... He was doing the right thing, riding on the sidewalk."
Abrams was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at University Hospital.
Landin was charged with intoxication manslaughter and driving without a license.
-Illegal alien killed dog with chainsaw in Georgia
On Feb. 17, Richmond County sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in the 2000 block of Chester Ave., in Augusta, and found a man covered in blood, who admitted to killing his neighbor's dog, Zuru.
The man, Pablo Chaves, 35, told deputies that he had just shot the dog twice with a 12-gauge shotgun, according to the arrest report.
However, when deputies investigated, they found the Rottweiler lying dead with a large gash on his neck. A bloody chainsaw was next to the dog's body.
Chaves then claimed he could not remember what happened.
The illegal alien was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and discharge of a firearm on or near a public highway.
-Arizona woman killed trying to protect daughter from illegal alien child rapist
On April 3, deputies with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) arrested Jose Zarate, 25, after he reportedly shot a woman to death who was trying to defend her daughter.
Authorities say an argument ensued after the suspect, 25-year-old Jose Zarate, went to 31-year-old Maria Saucedo's home around 9:30 p.m.
When the two began fighting about Zarate wanting to have a romantic relationship with Saucedo's 13-year-old daughter, he pulled out a rifle and shot her in the chest at close range -- in the presence of the teen.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio stated: "How awful this is that a mother loses her life in the process of defending her daughter's honor."
Zarate has been charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault and prohibited weapon possession.
-Illegal alien raped, murdered 9-month-old baby in Washington
On June 8, police in Barstow, Calif., arrested Jose Luis Aguilar, 36, at a Greyhound bus station after he reportedly sexually assaulted and beat his girlfriend's baby daughter to death.
A day earlier, the baby's mother, Jennifer Reedy, 31, awoke to find her daughter lying dead in her crib.
Aguilar was gone, as was Reedy's car and money from her purse.
Police were able to find Aguilar using the GPS in his cellphone.
At a press conference, Benton County prosecutor Andy Miller, told reporters: "It appears that Mr. Aguilar was on his way to flee to Mexico."
The Tri-City Herald reported:
Reedy called 911 at 9:57 a.m. Friday from her house at 29 Log Lane in Richland to report that she found Serenity purple in color and cold to the touch, the affidavit said. Medics found Serenity not breathing and pronounced her dead at the scene. An autopsy performed Saturday by Dr. Carl Wigren, a forensic pathologist from Seattle, showed Serenity died from “abusive head trauma,” said Benton County Coroner John Hansens.
The autopsy also revealed a cut and injuries to the girl’s vaginal area, the affidavit said.
Aguilar has been charged with first-degree rape of a child as well as second-degree degree murder.

The woman was found bloodied, with several serious injuries.
The woman's daughter, who also lives in the residence, called 911. Officers said they discovered Perez nude and on top of the woman in a bedroom that had blood on the "walls, floor, ceiling and bed."
The prosecution said that Perez admitted to police that he beat and raped the victim "because he was angry at women after a night of drinking."
The victim's cheekbones, nose and several teeth were broken in the ordeal.

Sollowin lived in the home where the brutal attack took place for 71 years.

On July 17, police in Austin arrested two Mexican nationals who reportedly participated in the gang-rape of a 13-year-old girl on June 29.
The girl, a runaway, who lives at the Settlement Home for Children, was picked up by three Latino men and driven to the Avalon Arms apartments, where she was raped by a large group of men for several hours, according to police.

Police say they were able to track Ortega and Perez from the phone call the girl made to her foster brother with their cell phone. She was able to make it back on her own to the settlement home.
The girl was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors determined her injuries were consistent with her allegations.
-Illegal alien raped, murdered his own mother in Florida
On Sept. 6, Broward County prosecutors stated that 23-year-old Gerard Lopes Belmonte's motive for killing his adoptive mother, was to cover up the fact that he had just raped her.

The badly beaten body of Natalie Belmonte was found in a marsh near the Pembroke Pines home she shared with her son.
