Illegal immigration and turberculosis both on the rise.

There was a recent report on the BBC about the rise of tuberculosis the one disease in the United States where Police can forcibily bring people in for treatment. The BBC unlike the mainstream U.S. media actually points to the cause of the problem which is the increased amount of illegal immigration into the U.S.
But, even the BBC report has some bias in it and drops some important facts. It says the immigrants who are treated for tuberculosis are treated for free. That may be. But, you know someone is paying for the treatment (including private hospital rooms) and that of course is the taxpayers.
