Pauline Hanson will use World Refugee Day to call for Australia to immediately withdraw from the United Nations refugee convention.

The One Nation leader and independent Cory Bernardi will on Tuesday move a motion in the Senate calling for the government to strengthen immigration policies and national security in light of domestic terror attacks, and the "refugee history" of those involved.

The motion says the 1951 UN refugee convention is "irretrievably broken" and that national security must come before accepting refugees.
