Ixil

Ixil is spoken by about 85,000 people. This region was subject to some of the worst repression in all of Guatemala. The Ixil people brought former dictator José Efraín Ríos Montt to trial for genocide and obtained a guilty verdict (which has subsequently been in legal limbo for close to two years). There are a significant number of Ixil speakers in the United States, and within this group are some who may have the strongest claims for asylum or other humanitarian protection.
