Dear Immigration Department,

Are you able to provide a breakdown on Unified Screening Mechanism claimants based on their religion?

I know you have nationality statistics, but do you also have USM claimant information broken down into ethnic groups, for example do you know how many USM claimants are Rohingya or Houthis?

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds
