San Francisco: Potential high court nominee Nguyen inspired by her family

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 08, 2016

Jacqueline Nguyen knows adversity.

She, her siblings and their parents fled Vietnam, and the 10-year-old Nguyen spent her first days in the United States in 1975 in a refugee tent city at Camp Pendleton in California.

Nguyen, 50, says her parents' perseverance to provide for their six children and start a new life in a foreign country has inspired her to seize opportunities even when they may be difficult or new.

Now a federal appeals court judge, Nguyen may need to summon that inspiration again if President Barack Obama names her as his pick for the U.S. Supreme Court, with a bruising partisan battle looming regardless of the nominee Obama sends to the U.S. Senate. The court is operating with only eight justices since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last month.
