The first family of Syrian refugees are due to arrive in Australia as government Ministers pushed back at suggestions from within their party to close Australia's borders and reconsider Australia's Immigration policies following the Paris attacks.
An internal push to reinstate Immigration Minister Peter Dutton on the powerful National Security Committee of cabinet was also endorsed by Mr Dutton himself after he told radio station 2UE its make-up was "under review".
Mr Dutton was the first immigration minister since 2007 to be left out of the group when Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull came to power. On Sunday, Tasmanian Liberal backbencher Andrew Nikolic urged Mr Dutton to be reappointed to the position, saying he was concerned about unconfirmed reports that terrorists had posed as refugees to enter Europe.
Expressing similar concerns, Deputy Speaker of the NSW lower house, Andrew Fraser, called for Australia to "close our borders" to Muslim asylum-seekers.
