Today host and all round nice guy Karl Stefanovic is pretty pissed off with immigration minister Peter Dutton after Dutton said "illiterate and innumerate" refugees will take Aussie jobs.
Karl told the story of his grandparents, who spent a year in an immigration camp in Wollongong, before building a life for their family. Karl also mentioned Today sport presenter Tim Gilbert, whose grandparents arrived in Australia after World War II with little English, but who managed to build a successful business.
Karl then spoke about the difference generations of refugees have made to Australia.
Stefanovic attacked Dutton for "cherry picking" facts to support his argument, before reading from a department of immigration report that highlighted the positive contributions refugees have made to Australia.
"Listen to this report from 2011," he said. "'The larger picture of humanitarian entrants is one of considerable achievement and contribution. Humanitarian entrants help meet labour shortages, they display strong entrepreneurial qualities compared with other migrant groups with a higher average in engaging in small and medium business enterprise."
