Deportation of Haitians Resumes

A year after the earthquake in Haiti, the U.S. is once again deporting Haitians back to the troubled island.

Now, the deportations have resumed, but human rights organizations say the situation on the island is so bad that any deportation is essentially a 'death sentence.' A look at the ethical and legal questions behind the U.S. policy.
