Of course, "security" is a weasel word here.

Illegal immigrants represent a threat to the sovereignty of this country.

The Democrats are referring to the 81% of the money from the tax cuts that went to the super-wealthy and corporations that didn't need any tax cuts and that actually rake in trillions of dollars in profits because of the infrastructure.

As consumers the infrastructure provides us with goods and services but we don't profit from it.

Corporations and wealthy investors actually profit from the existence of our infrastructure.
Again you repeat another dishonest Democrat talking point. The 81% of the benefit from the tax cuts goes to the wealthy doesn't come true until 2027 and it assumes the individual tax cuts are allowed to expire. If the individual tax cuts are renewed or gasp made permanent, the rich receive 25% of the benefit far less than the 60% of the Federal income tax they pay.

The Trump tax cuts have resulted in record tax revenues. The problem is a failure to cut spending.

Infrastructure doesn't provide us goods any more than Solyndra provided us with solar energy. It can facilitate capital formation but without private investment nothing gets produced.
