This week in Mountain View California, people like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman joined a group of undocumented immigrants to pull a 24-hour “hackathon.” The goal?

Marketplace’s Queena Kim was on the scene, and tells Tech Report host Ben Johnson what she saw.
