Immigrants working in the United States sent $120 billion back to their home countries in 2012, according to reports.

More than $23 billion went to Mexico, $13.45 billion to China, $10.84 billion to India and $10 billion to the Philippines, among other recipients, The Daily Mail reported Thursday.

Only $5.1 billion was sent back to the U.S. by the 2.4 million American citizens working abroad.

The amount of money being sent by immigrants across the entire world reached $530 billion last year, The Mail reports.
