It will affect the "hallowed" halls of Washington when members of their own families are affected. Until then, it's business as usual.
And in many a congressional district, it means even more Democrat VOTES, (if one can stand for Open Borders).
Occasionally a Congressman gets mugged on Capitol Hill heading for a townhouse there. But that is your normal, inner city D.C. crime. Nope, unless some Congressmen's immediate family have direct dealings with a crazed, machete-wielding, Maryland driver's license-carrying, Salvadorean illegal alien in good standing in the Maras, hey man, don't expect much to happen to help the rest of us here in "fly over country" who have to put up with this neverending guano.
