You're right there are a lot of catholic, hispanic immigrants in recent years but a lot of the catholics are there because they live on land that was conquered from the Mexican Empire.
Next to this, and this can apply in many countries, is the cultural-religiosity. Folks who hold on to faiths for their unifying factors, they don't believe but do like it as a means to a social end (getting together, joined participations and such).
(couldn't help sharing this, faiths fascinate me, and i'm like an enthusiastic amateur in delving into these things).
I don't know for sure what the cause of the correlation would be… I'd guess more recent immigrants and their descendants are more likely to be religious, but that still doesn't explain everything. Either way, I don't think white -> atheism makes sense.
I'd assume that Portland is where most of the state's unaffiliated live. Maybe the eastern part of the state is less like that.
