Additional Information

To study the settlement process of undocumented migrants, this work examines one of Houston's Maya communities, the approximately 900 Maya from a township in the Department of Totonicapan, Guatemala. It traces this Maya community from its genesis in 1978 to the complex effects of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA).

Deciding to be Legal is the only book that looks at the amnesty process after IRCA. Deeply relevant to our current policy debates over dreamers, migration and the contemporary detention of Honduran, Guatemalan, and Salvadoran families in South Texas. I hope it makes it into a second edition with an updated afterword.

I wish it had explored the political culture of late 80s Houston more deeply. Space for someone else to do that work.
