Meet Joseph Cao (R-LA)

From the Times-Picayune, Dec. 1 edition:

<blockquote>Born in war-ravaged Vietnam, Cao fled to the United States when he was 8, learned English, earned degrees in physics and philosophy, and joined the Catholic seminary. When his views on how best to serve the poor changed, Cao went to law school, began a practice specializing in immigration, settled in Venetian Isles [a largely Vietnamese community in eastern Orleans Parish] and started a family.</blockquote>
