Despite having served for less than two months, Hawaii Congressman Charles K. Djou is influencing national policy in Washington.  He has rapidly become one of the most active and outspoken representatives in the U.S. today.

This past week, the Wall Street Journal printed an op-ed column specifically lauding new legislation introduced by Congressman Djou [Read op-ed HERE]. The Wall Street Journal picked up on the Congressman's belief that the U.S. must create a knowledge-based economy for the 21st century and can do so by creating positive immigration laws that encourage individuals with advanced degrees and high technology backgrounds to come to America.

As a result of Charles' efforts to raise awareness of the impact of the Jones Act on Hawaii, the Washington Post recently wrote an editorial calling for the repeal of the Jones Act [Read their editorial HERE].

Last week, CNBC featured Charles live on national television [watch clip HERE]. The day after the financial services reform bill passed the U.S. Senate, Congressman Djou appeared on national TV and discussed major issues including Congress' inadequate banking reform efforts, the need to restrain the ballooning Federal budget deficit and international currency exchange rates with China.

In addition to these national publications, Charles and his work have been featured by multiple national media outlets including CNN, ABC News, and Fox News. Few members of Congress, let alone a freshman, have had as much impact on the national policies of our country as Congressman Djou.
