Addressing your audience with respect doesn't make them right, but addressing them with respect does get you their ear. Same thing is true of not treating their concerns as illegitimate. Safety is a legitimate concern. Spending public money on people who are not viewed as deserving it is a legitimate concern. The answers to that have to do with what standards are really being used for "deserve" (particularly among illegal immigrants) and what the real end result is of spending that money vs. not spending it. And, in the case of safety, where risk really comes from and what really contributes to it.
