US representative to United Nations, Nikki Haley, said that her mother was not allowed to be a judge in India because she was a woman. She was actually put up to be one of the first female judges in India, but because of the situation with women, she wasn’t allowed to sit on the bench. But how amazing for her to watch her daughter become governor of South Carolina and US ambassador to the UN.

However, according to the records, a woman named Anna Chandy had become a judge in Travancore in pre-Independence India. She was promoted to District judge in 1948 and to a high court judge in 1959. She was able to sit on the bench and was allowed to function as a judge.

Haley’s parents emigrated from India in the 1960s and she said that she is proud to be the daughter of Indian immigrants who believe the family is ‘blessed’ to be American.

Haley also supported President Trump’s decision of banning six-Muslim countries, saying that there were more than a dozen other Muslim countries that were not banned. Hence, Trump was temporary banning the people and refugees because the rise in immigrants was making it hard for all the immigrants to be properly vetted. Thus, the administration was stopping them till the problem could be resolved.
