Question about English (US)

I learned that the word "alien" can mean both a "foreigner" and a "creature" from other planets. But I wonder if it wouldn't sound awkward to refer to foreigners as "aliens" because it could mean extraterrestrial as well. Do you not get confused? How can you distinguish these two meanings? How often do you use the word "alien" instead of "foreigner"?
