We're Canadian. Cousin did semester in Hawaii a few years ago, fell in love with a boy. A few months ago they got married, hoping to ease the green card situation so she could work there legally & they could continue to be together while he finishes school.

Chinese ethnicity and assimilation?

I know that there was quite a bit of immigration from China in the late 1800s. My question is, have the descendants of those immigrants ethnically assimilated into the rest of 'white' America, or have they retained their ethnic identity throughout the 20th century to today? Most Chinese-Americans that I have met are more recent immigrants, so I have no idea.
