WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — Harmeet Dhillon, a San Francisco trial attorney and one of California’s three members of the Republican National Committee, has been reportedly pegged as a candidate by President Trump to lead the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.

The 48-year-old reportedly interviewed for the role in Washington Thursday, Dhillon has emerged as an outspoken leader for the party in a state where their message is mostly silent, she became the vice chair of the California Republican Party in 2013.

Last summer, Dhillon opened the second night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland by delivering a Sikh prayer in Punjabi before now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions formally nominated Trump, calling him a “warrior and a leader.”

Formed 60 years ago, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division enforces federal laws which bar discrimination. It’s unclear who else might be up for the post, which is being closely watched given Sessions’ record and statements about states’ rights and religious freedom. Following the election, Dhillon said she believed the president’s claims that millions had voted illegally.

Without citing evidence, President Trump has listed California, Virginia and New Hampshire as states where large amounts of illegal votes denied him a popular vote victory. California has not done enough to protect against people fraudulently registering or casting ballots, Dhillon said at the time, including not requiring voters to show identification.

Dhillon has worked as an attorney representing persecuted Sikhs and served on the board of the Northern California chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
