(alien invaders in green jumpsuits)
In The Invaders, some aliens take on human form and hide among the population of Earth. I've never seen this television show, but in one episode, "The Life Seekers", viewers were told that there might be different factions among the aliens, including some who are opposed to the faction that has invaded Earth. This is a taste of what might provide a sensible backstory and a rational explanation for what is happening in the show.

A cadre of telepathic robots took control of Earth. When the ensuing warfare between those robots and the aliens finally ended, the humans of Earth had been given an opportunity to survive, develop a technological civilization and reach for the stars. Since human knowledge of the aliens still must be constrained and restricted, the only widespread source of information about the presence of aliens on Earth became stories that the people of Earth viewed as science fiction.
