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).
