It will be impossible to track down the callers. Nearly all of these calls indicate a fake spoofed number on caller ID.

When are they going to go after hackers?

The Robo calls are merely annoying.
Hackers steal info and sometimes use it to threaten and deliberately harm those who’s phones and computers they hack into.
But if you are not a well known politician or big celebrity, the authorities don’t care about being hacked.
They make a big deal out of talking about spam and robo calls, but refuse to even address, the hacking that can do far more damage.

This law has no teeth, since they are going after the telemarketers and not the business whose product they are promoting. The telemarketers can be based in Timbuktu and are hard to track. The only effective way to stop this would be to go after the business which they are promoting.
