The advocacy group formed by Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg to promote comprehensive immigration reform will hold a "hackathon" with illegal immigrant "Dreamers" next month in an attempt to shine a bigger spotlight on the issue.
FWD.us, Zuckerberg's group that has employed consultants from Washington's bipartisan ruling class to establish a footprint in Washington, will team up with famous coders for the event. Zuckerberg himself will be one of the participants.
Dropbox's Drew Houston will be another coder at the event, which will reportedly address"the problems within our immigration system." LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman will host the hackathon at his company's Mountain View, California headquarters on November 21 and 22.
