Columbus church celebrates after mother claiming sanctuary there allowed to stay in US

Sun, 01/27/2019 - 19:19

An immigrant mother living in a northwest Columbus church to avoid deportation has been allowed to stay in the U.S.

Just North United Church of Christ held a celebration for her Sunday afternoon in light of the news.

For nearly three months, the mother of three called the church home in an effort to avoid deportation.

The woman at the center of this case, who the church calls "Angelica," is not being shown to protect her privacy and she was not at Sunday’s event.

Attorneys for the woman say she is the first person in sanctuary in Ohio ever to win legal relief from Immigration Customs Enforcement. Angelica is now able to legally stay in the U.S. because she has officially obtained her U visa, a special visa set aside for victims of certain types of crimes.

Members of the congregation who worked one-on-one with the woman say their effort to keep her safe as she navigated the lengthy and labor-intensive legal process was one of love.

Akron says cyberattack forced shutdown of city help line

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 20:16

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Officials say a financially motivated cyberattack on computer servers forced an Ohio city to shut down its 311 call center line as it prepared to dig out from a snowstorm.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports a city of Akron spokeswoman says the attack included ransomware that demanded thousands of dollars. Ransomware is malicious software that threatens to publish a target's data or block access to it.

Mayor Dan Horrigan said at a news conference Friday the city learned of the attack Tuesday and that it also targeted "critical" hardware and software systems.

The FBI and Ohio State Highway Patrol have joined Akron's investigation into the attack. Gov. Mike DeWine on Friday approved Horrigan's request for state help and activated eight cybersecurity experts from the Ohio National Guard Cyber Team.
