I think you have to outline stroke the line (object -> path -> outline stroke), and then select it with the squares and exclude them using pathfinder window.
This will make "holes" in the squares not color but you will be able do move the outline stroked line with the direct selection tool before you expand the exclude command.
If you want color instead of "holes" copy, paste behind and fill the squares before exclude.

t recommend using a thick line to create the inverted effect anyways. instead, use a rectangle that is in the same shape.
Lines in illustrator are not the greatest - they don't scale properly, and they can cause trouble. Always use a shape in place of a line when you can.

1. Place a white filled rectangle BEHIND ALL the shapes first.
2. Make the line white (if the "line" is actually a rectangle, fill it with white, if it's a line, assign a white stroke to it)
3. Finally, assign the "Exclusion" blending mode to the line (in the Transparecny palette)
