I'm not sure, correct me if im wrong but i think that this really doesnt refer to, or even allude to extraterrestrials in any way. The aliens it refers to are defined as any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem.

While this does include extraterrestrials, it was not created to deal with them, instead it was meant to deal with species such as the gypsy moth or Chinese Snakehead fish. The government order that refers to extraterrestrials is Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, whitch prohibits extraterrestrial contact. this law is outdated and refered to bacteria and was created by a government ignorant of what lay beyond earth.

But please, correct me if im wrong

Quite right on the main points here, Dear xaos.
The legislation claimed to have such things as "killer bees" or particularly belligerent ants in mind when Clinton signed the order (this was towards the end of his glorious reign when he was more-or-less governing by decree); and it caused great concern because it did not appear to put any limit upon what "control" might mean in terms of the powers granted to Federal Agencies.
It was essentially a follow-up to the splendidly named "Exotic Organisms" act of Carter.
The weakness of the legislation was, of course, that no one actually got round to defining "domestic" which ratehr left "alien" as a totally meaningless label.
The "ET" law was a reality -very old, back in 1969 before the Moon landing and it has become a sort of urban legend.

in the FWIW department, there is no 14 CFR section 1211.

It is reserved. so whatever reg once existed has been repealed,
