Need to Know visits the island of Hispaniola, where the Dominican Republican is beginning to deport Haitians who fled across the border after last year's earthquake. We look at the life of an Israeli-Palestinian actor and social activist who was killed this week. We also examine Republican proposals for changes to Medicare and Medicaid, and Jon Meacham looks at the legacy of the Bay of Pigs.
