My goodness, what a ridiculous thing to say! Even if your cleaner was a refugee- wtf has that got to do with anything?
Next time she mentions anyone you don't know, start asking crazy questions about their origins- make it something specific too- Is so and so a Russian, here on a student visa? Or perhaps an Inuit, here to experience our way of life? Or are they of Chinese descent but their family has been here since the goldrush?
It might illustrate what a strange line of questioning she took- if nothing else her confusion will give you a chuckle.

Ok so it's not just the mil who says dumb things.
I just had the following conversation with my dad. I couldn't believe it! At least my comeback was better than with the mil
- Dumb or racist?
Dad: "Adam goodes has been causing trouble again."
Me: "what do you mean?"
Dad: "oh some people said stuff to him again and he's kicking up a stink."
Me: "what stuff?"
Dad: "I don't know but he's not endearing himself to the Australian public."
Me: "what do you mean?"
Dad: "well he's calling Australia Day invasion day."
Me: "well it sort of was, wasn't it? I mean the Brits didn't come armed with roses and chocolates."
Dad: "well they are lucky the Russians didn't discover Australia things would have been much worse."
Me: "oh so you mean they would have wiped out the entire Aboriginal populations of NSW and Tasmania and not just Tasmania?"

Your mil's comment was definitely racist. I'm undecided about your dad but I'd say more stupid than racist.

Sad to hear comments like those of VP's dad and MIL actually voiced.
