The US and Aussie concern over security has cost many well educated American citizens the opportunity to positively contribute to their local tech environments. Issues like spying are always a potential concern, but what about issues like unemployed engineers turning to desperate situations because of lack of work (or relevant work).

Security risks from Huawei? What about national security risks from Microsoft/Intel/Cisco/Google/Facebook to the other countries in the world? It is simple: don't buy from Huawei, buy from Cisco. Remember Toyota's accelerator pedal.
