5. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Alien
   a foreigner, or person born in another country, and therefore
   not entitled to the rights and privileges of the country where
   he resides. Among the Hebrews there were two classes of aliens.
   
     (1.) Those who were strangers generally, and who owned no
   landed property.
   
     (2.) Strangers dwelling in another country without being
   naturalized (Lev. 22:10; Ps. 39:12).
   
     Both of these classes were to enjoy, under certain conditions,
   the same rights as other citizens (Lev. 19:33, 34; Deut. 10:19).
   They might be naturalized and permitted to enter into the
   congregation of the Lord by submitting to circumcision and
   abandoning idolatry (Deut. 23:3-8).
   
     This term is used (Eph. 2:12) to denote persons who have no
   interest in Christ.
   

6. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
ALIEN, persons. One born out of the jurisdiction of the United States, who
has not since been naturalized under their constitution and laws. To this
there are some exceptions, as this children of the ministers of the United
States in foreign courts. See Citizen, Inhabitant.
     2. Aliens are subject to disabilities, have rights, and are bound to
perform duties, which will be briefly considered. 1. Disabilities. An alien
cannot in general acquire title to real estate by the descent, or by other
mere operation of law; and if he purchase land, he may be divested of the
fee, upon an inquest of office found. To this general rule there are
statutory exceptions in some of the states; in Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Louisiana, New Jersey, Rev. Laws, 604, and Michigan, Rev. St. 266, s. 26,
the disability has been removed; in North Carolina, (but see Mart. R. 48; 3
Dev. R. 138; 2 Hayw. 104, 108; 3 Murph. 194; 4 Dev. 247; Vermont and
Virginia, by constitutional provision; and in Alabama, 3 Stew R. 60;
Connecticut, act of 1824, Stat. tit. Foreigners, 251; Indiana, Rev. Code, a.
3, act of January 25, 1842; Illinois, Kentucky, 1 Litt. 399; 6 Mont. 266
Maine, Rev. St,. tit. 7, c. 93, s. 5 Maryland, act of 1825, ch. 66; 2 Wheat.
259; and Missouri, Rev. Code, 1825, p. 66, by statutory provision it is
partly so.
     3. An alien, even after being naturalized, is ineligible to the office
of president of the United States; and in some states, as in New York, to
that of governor; he cannot be a member of congress, till the expiration of
seven years after his naturalization. An alien can exercise no political
rights whatever; he cannot therefore vote at any political election, fill
any office, or serve as a juror. 6 John. R. 332.
     4.-2. An alien has a right to acquire personal estate, make and
enforce contracts in relation to the same - he is protected from injuries,
and wrongs, to his person and property, his relative rights and character;
he may sue and be sued.
     5.-3. He owes a temporary local allegiance, and his property is
liable to taxation. Aliens are either alien friends or alien enemies. It is
only alien friends who have the rights above enumerated; alien enemies are
incapable, during the existence of war to sue, and may be ordered out of the
country. See generally, 2 Kent. Com. 43 to 63; 1 Vin. Ab. 157; 13 Vin. ab.
414; Bac. Ab. h.t.; 1 Saund. 8, n.2; Wheat. Dig. h.t.; Bouv. Inst. Index,
h.t.



7. The Devil's Dictionary (1881-1906)
