Business Report - 10/14/15: How the U.S. mainland is on its way to being like Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A group called Asian Americans Advancing Justice says 1% of residents of the U.S. West, 870,000 people, are Pacific Islanders. And one in 10 residents of Western states, 8 million people, are Asian-Americans. 

Now a Pew study says no U.S. racial or ethnic group will be a majority by 2065. 

Pew estimates we will be 46% white, 24% Hispanic, 14% Asian and 13% African-American. Of immigrant citizens, 38% will be Asian, 31% Hispanic, 20% white, 9% African American.
