That said Alliaria petiolata  may regenerate from adventitious buds on the roots. These may sit doormant in the soil for up to 18 months until disturbed and thus regenerating. Often classed as  Monocarpic perennials rather than biennials because the foliage can remain for more than two years before they flower. All this in mind I think an invasiveness of barely 1 is a little off the mark.

The first one looks like 'Jack in The Hedge' (garlic mustard) and the description matches. I have come up all over my garden has quite deep roots so be sure to dig deep and get it out before it seeds everywhere.
