Hawaii has a sizable community of immigrants, much of which emigrated from the Philippines. Nearly 18 percent of the state’s population was born in another country, while 16 percent are native-born Americans who have at least one immigrant parent. Foreign-born residents also represent a vital share of the state’s labor force in many sectors: more than 40 percent of workers in both the mining and agriculture industries are immigrants.
