Citizens of Nazi-occupied countries do not fall under the orders regulating the conduct of “enemy aliens,” it was announced here today by U.S. Attorney Mathias F. Corea. Defining the term “enemy aliens,” Mr. Correa said that this term is applied only to nationals of Germany, Austria, Italy and Japan.

Ugo Carusi, executive assistant to Attorney General Francis Biddle, said in radio broadcast lest night that the Government would not permit the persecution of enemy aliens, but that it would deal swiftly and effectively with “disloyalty and hostility on the part of any person, alien or citizen.” He emphasized that the American principle of individual liberty would guide the government in its dealings with all aliens.
