a national group says on its website that the city provides a haven for undocumented immigrants.

Columbus is one of about 200 cities and counties listed as having or considering sanctuary policies on a website compiled by a group called the Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC.
As a source, the group cites a Dispatch story from May 10, 2007, about local Latinos complaining that they were targeted during a drunken-driving checkpoint.
The story didn’t say that Columbus has a sanctuary-city law, but it quoted a task-force coordinator saying that police didn’t contact immigration officials about drivers who were pulled over and determined to be undocumented. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2015/07/27/officials-...
