Our Plan of Action for Sgt Hicham Benkabbou's Citizenship Case

"It is not an understatement to say that SGT Benkabbou has been instrumental in sustaining the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) during this combat deployment to Afghanistan. He is a leader, a problem solver, and possess the physical gifts of a US Paratrooper."LTC Peterman, 782nd BSB Commander

Plan to assist Sgt Hicham Benkabbou to get his duly earned U.S. Citizenship!

Dear Friends,

I want to thank the hundreds of you who emailed me over the holiday weekend with their support and request to help Sgt Benkabbou.  I could not get to all of you individually.  Most of you had the initial reaction to ask me the question "on what grounds is Sgt Benkabbou being deported"?

Plan of Action

We have decided to create a "Team of Voices" to speak on behalf of Sgt Hicham Benkabbou.  Kareem Shora, Executivce Director, ADC at [email protected], and Imad Hamad and Abed Ayoub of ADC ( will take the lead in moving forward this case.  Those who feel that they can contribute to this project, please work with Imad and Ayoub at [email protected] and [email protected], phone number: 313-581-1201.

I will keep all of you posted as to the latest developments.  If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you so much for your support!
