From the NY Times:
Federal authorities on Thursday raided several locations in the Northeast and took several people into custody as part of an ongoing investigation into the failed Times Square car bombing, according to a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Boston.
The statement said the actions “do not relate to any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States” and were undertaken based on evidence that was gathered in the investigation that followed the car bomb attempt on May 1.
“We can confirm that search warrants have been executed in several locations in the Northeast in connection with the investigation into the attempted Times Square bombing,” said the statement, released by the office of Warren Bamford, the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.’s Boston office.
A number of people who were encountered by the agents as they executed the warrants were taken into custody for immigration violations, the statement said.
Wow, imagine that! Immigration violations connected to terrorism. Aaaaand this is why it makes no sense to promote a sanctuary city policy and then whine to the Feds that you aren't getting enough funds from them to fight terrorism.
