Remittances that are dispatched home by migrant workers have become second largest financial inflow to so many developing countries. This much hyped up & demonized phenomena in some countries is no novice as migration of workers to disparate parts of the world & them sending a part of their income back to their homelands has always been prevalent in history. For instance, imperial Spain that invaded vast swathes of western hemisphere resulted in being vast number of Spanish & other Europeans trickle into the colonies (Adam, 1989, p 45-71). This often resulted in Spanish workers sending money back to Spain. Countries like Ireland heavily depended on international remittances as Irish people constantly left their shores to look for greener patches of North America & Australian continent. Many countries like Italy, Spain, and Argentina subsequently enacted laws in this regard.
