Ill bet that at least 1 GOP candidate says that only aliens willing to convert to Christianity should be allowed into the country. I have no idea which one it would be, but there would definitely be one of them

In line with what imabench said.

Yea, there would be a bunch of fearful (terrified) people - the same as usual. There would be a group who are excited about the prospects for the future - same group as usual.

I don't really know what affect this will have. Either the extraterrestrial's head will explode due to lack of logic, or the fundamentalist GOP head will pop with the retort that such a request is nonsensical.

The aliens want to harvest 1,000 humans for sexual experiments, then they will leave. Do we negotiate?

I suppose that would depend on what the aliens taste like.

We should certainly let some extraterrestrials come to Earth (I mean, why wouldn't we? They're freaking aliens!). However, we should beware letting them come to live on Earth in numbers large enough to threaten humanity's status as the dominant species of our planet.

A good cutoff point would be a maximum of 1 billion extraterrestrials on Earth.

Send them to Neptune, where they can cool off. And yes, I know what you really meant, in which case, comic books provide the best answer.
