By Hidayat Setiaji and Fergus Jensen JAKARTA (Reuters) - An Indonesian passenger plane that crashed with 54 people on board in Papua province was carrying cash worth around $470,000 for remote villages, a post office spokesman said on Monday as rescue teams headed to the mountainous site where it went down. Earlier, a search and rescue plane spotted debris believed to be from the aircraft in the heavily forested Bintang Mountains district, local police chief Yunus Wally told the Antara news agency, adding that a search team was approaching the area. There were 44 adult passengers, five children and infants and five crew on the Trigana short-haul flight from Sentani Airport in Jayapura, capital of Papua, south to Oksibil.
With a new Fox News national poll showing him leading in the race for the GOP presidential nomination nationwide with 25 percent of Republican voters, billionaire Donald Trump returned to a favorite theme on Sunday – promising to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and deporting illegal immigrant—including their children. Trump, who arrived with a flourish at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday in a black helicopter with his name emblazoned on the side, told NBC Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd that the millions of illegal immigrants in this country “have to go,” even if that means the government rounding up and deporting whole families. The real estate tycoon roiled the political and public policy waters this spring by denouncing many of the illegal immigrants as “rapists” and criminals who were encouraged to come to this country by the Mexican government.
(Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would increase fees on some Mexican visas and all border crossing cards as part of a broader plan to force Mexico to pay for a wall along the southern U.S. border. On NBC's "Meet the Press," he said he would deport all undocumented immigrants and rescind U.S. President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration. In a policy paper issued on Sunday, Trump said he would increase fees on temporary visas for Mexican chief executives, diplomats and North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) workers if Mexico does not agree to pay for the wall.
Hillary Clinton's private email server should be examined by the U.S. intelligence watchdog after the FBI finishes reviewing any classified information on it, a Republican lawmaker said on Sunday.

After months of pressure, Clinton last week gave the FBI her private email server and a thumb drive of work-related emails from her tenure.
