NYC Bomb Plotter, Illegal Alien

This one's for you Dr. Chaos. Michelle 'de-link Rusty's brilliant Drudge-like post' Malkin:

You've heard about the two men who were busted for allegedly plotting to bomb the Herald Square subway station. You may not have heard that one of the men, Shahawar Matin Siraj, a 22-year-old Pakistani national living in Jackson Heights, New York, had run into problems with immigration authorities.
Digger's realm (surprise) also pissed off.

On a related note, my sister told me on the phone yesterday that the INS swept through Temecula the other day. Apparently they raided a residential neighborhood, which is something you never hear of these days. You never will again, because she says (this is all second hand) that Homeland Security stepped in and stopped the raids. Temecula is Republican California and the locals got pissed off when the raids stopped, or so my sister says. Can anyone confirm this or know of any newspaper stories about the incident?
