Pushed From the U.S., They Find Hope in Mexico's ‘Silicon Valley'

Targeting English-speaking students who have recently been deported from the United States, the startup offers free, intensive programming classes and has attracted the attention of recruiters at U.S. software companies with offices in Mexico. "Now, they are getting a second shot at the American dream - in Mexico," WSJ's David Luhnow writes.
