The Prime Minister and federal politicians have lined up to condemn Queensland Senator Fraser Anning for praising the White Australia policy and referencing a "final solution" on immigration during a speech to parliament.

In a post on the Katter's Australian Party page, the party said Anning was "under attack for speaking the truth" and that he needed support so he could "fulfil his promise to reduce immigration levels and take back Australia from the extremists".

Anning, in his first speech to Parliament, called for a return to the country's historic "White Australia" policy that explicitly favored immigration by Europeans over Asians and Pacific islanders. "While all Muslims are not terrorists, certainly all terrorists these days are Muslims", he said while urging for a plebiscite to decide who enters Australia.

Senator Hanson said she was "appalled" by the remarks of Senator Anning, who was elected on the One Nation ticket to replace Malcolm Roberts but quit the party and later joined Mr Katter's group.

Hanson has warned previously that Australia was in danger of being "swamped by Muslims", but has united with mainstream politicians to condemn Anning's rhetoric, which she compared to that of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. "That has nothing to do with the 'Final Solution, ' the thought police got onto that".

Anning, who represents Queensland for Katter's Australian Party, called for immigrant numbers to be slashed, and for a ban on Muslims, justifying his call by saying they had "consistently shown to be the least able to assimilate and integrate".

"I'm a Muslim migrant, I'm about to be a Senator and there's not a damn thing Fraser Anning can do about it", she wrote in a piece for website Junkee on Wednesday.

"You have to be pretty outrageous to be condemned by everybody in the Australian parliament, but Senator Anning has managed to do just this", he said.

An Australian Senator is facing calls to resign after a shocking maiden speech that has attracted comparisons to Nazi Germany.

He claimed to be simply referring to the "ultimate solution" to a political problem and said people who were offended took the two words out of context.

Anning singled out Muslims for particular criticism.

"Absolutely, 1000%, I support everything he said", Katter told reporters during a news conference in the northern city of Cairns Wednesday. "This might go some way to helping encourage others like me to put their hand up and make parliaments look a bit more like the streets and suburbs of the country we live in".

Ms Aly told Parliament she was proud of the response from all sides of politics against Mr Anning's speech.

The non-apology was followed up with an appearance on Sydney's 2GB Radio, where he told host Alan Jones that Muslim immigration needed to end because some of the immigrants could be terrorists. Anning has since said he did not know the history of the phrase. "I am not going to apologise or regret anything that I say".
