The Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW (ECCNSW), as the state peak body representing communities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, refers to comments made by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Peter Dutton MP. He recently said that unemployment would rise if Australia dramatically increases its refugee intake and suggesting that refugees were illiterate and innumerate and would take Australian jobs.
