A longtime supporter of comprehensive immigration reform, Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg brought undocumented immigrants to Silicon Valley to "hack" for immigration reform.  The Los Angeles Times reports that twenty immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children began taking part in a 25-hour "hackathon" Wednesday at LinkedIn's Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. The young software programmers broke into small groups to spend all night coming up with new applications as part of an effort to put the spotlight back on the need for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
