While I share your concern regarding the rise of communicable diseases due to illegal aliens, I am curious where you heard that it cost between two hundred thousand and five hundred thousand dollars to treat each case.
My understanding was that regular TB treatment runs about $2000 per patient, and only the treatment for rare drug-resistant TB runs significantly higher.
I'd have to do some digging but those numbers were in an article posted here on FR about a month ago...
