16.11 Contagious disorder of alien wife or minor child of naturalized citizen or permanent resident alien. Where an alien, otherwise admissible, is certified upon arrival to be afflicted with any contagious disorder and is (a) the wife or minor child of an alien who is shown to have taken up his permanent residence in the United States; (b) the alien wife of a naturalized citizen married to him abroad prior to his naturalization; or (c) the minor child of a náturalized citizen born abroad to him prior to his naturalization, such alien shall be held until it is ascertained whether the disorder will be easily curable or whether landing can be permitted without danger to others. Deportation shall occur promptly with respect to such wife and minor child when it is ascertained that the disorder is not easily curable or that the alien cannot be landed without danger to others, but if it shall be determined that the disorder is easily curable, and the husband or father or other responsible person is willing to bear the expense of treatment, such alien, if otherwise admissible and upon proper application under section 22 of the Immigration Act of 1917 (39 Stat. 891; 8 U.S.C. 159), may be accorded treatment in a hospital until cured and thereupon admitted. Examining surgeons shall include, so far as possible, in their certificate for contagious disorder, statement as to whether or not the disorder will be easily curable and whether or not the person certified can be permitted to land without danger to other persons.* † [17-A-1]
