THE LAZARUS GENERATION

God has called me to build an army out the forgotten souls in America’s inner cities.  Up from graves in America’s forgotten communities, they will rise to become Satan’s worst nightmare.  I can prove it! 
Today’s victims will be tomorrow’s treasure.  The people no church wants will become the people every church wants.
Today they stick needles in their arms—tomorrow, they will be filled with the Holy Ghost, and the hand of God extended.  Today, they sell their bodies in grinding despair—tomorrow they will be shining temples of God.  Today, they scavenge dumpsters for food—tomorrow they will walk in dignity, boldness and prosperity.  Society’s rejects are about to become royalty.
They will turn the heart of many Americans back to God.  Their testimony will expose the lie of secular progressivism.  The leftist media will have no weapon against them. 
The Lazarus Generation cannot be bought off, seduced away, or distracted from their appointed goal. 
Yesterday, the powers of darkness panicked over news out of Reno Nevada.  A plan that was hidden in the heart of God—a powerful weapon that was forged before the foundation of the earth—came into existence.

Because of this, you will now see awe-inspiring soul winning events.  The poor are going to get food, shelter, clothing—and yes—jobs.  Gang members, addicts and the homeless will be drawn in record numbers to atmospheres of open heaven right where they live.
The first rumblings of this massive lightning storm, came in Modesto last week.  Star of David Ministries hosted Mario Murillo Ministries and Frank Saldana of Inner City Action to do a tent meeting in the hood. 

Pastor Frank & Kim Saldana

Since 1996, Pastor Frank And Kim Saldana have served on a full-time basis. Having began their ministry work in Manteca, CA, the impact of their love for people has touched thousands over the past 20 years of service in the community.

Pastor Frank & Kim have been married over 20 years. They founded Inner City Action Inc to meet the needs of those that are often, ignored, neglected and forgotten. They are passionate about bringing awareness, education and change. They are dedicated to reaching and restoring our struggling communities.

We all had the strange and wonderful sense that this was a rehearsal for something gigantic.  The gifts of MMM and Inner City Action blended effortlessly.  The gaping holes in our outreach were filled dramatically by their expertise.  It was simply meant to be.

MMM received an amazing gift from Rick Wiles and TRUNEWS.  Rick donated a brand-new tent and 1,000 luxury folding chairs—he even paid for 2 semi-trucks to haul it from Vero Beach to Reno. 

Here we sat with a huge gift we did not know how to use.  Frank and Inner-City Impact have a tent crew!  The chairs were stuffed into a storage area that wiped out our storage.  Frank has a 20,000-square foot warehouse!   You can see where this is all heading.
So, we met in Reno to formalize the obvious.  We needed to team up, combine forces and touch cities across America.  We will provide a Living Proof Crusade.  They will provide the mechanics of transporting the tent, set up and take down.   We will recruit and train soul winners to join us in each city.  They will bring trained workers to go door to door giving the poor food, and many other basic needs.  
After we nailed down 8 Cities for the next 12 months, Frank and his crew loaded our new tent and chairs and took them to Stockton. 
Never, and I mean never have I seen a vision whose inevitable outcome is revival—national revival. 
Both ministries remain independent ministries with unique callings but for these tent invasions we will unite hearts, and pool our gifts, talents and resources to have an overwhelming impact on many cities.
I have no doubt that days of massive harvest, towering signs and wonders, and revival are just ahead.  Stay tuned we are about to announce Merced, and Fresno California!

I WILL NOT LET SATAN HAVE THIS GENERATION

 What happened

I WILL NOT LET SATAN HAVE THIS GENERATION

By Mario Murillo

 

I will not let Satan have this generation.  They are the most lied to generation in history.  They have been programmed, brainwashed and propagandized from their first day in school. 

On Sunday Night April 17th we leveled our first major hit at the forces of darkness in California.  

First let me tell you about how vicious the attack on our children is today.  Satan has inflicted a masterstroke of deception.  That deception is being funneled through the most lethal cultural enemies of our children.

These are the best equipped and most powerful voices to our children: techie billionaires who own the great social networks who mean to control what we hear and see—leftist movie stars who throw their celebrity around like a weapon—drug driven musical superstars who sell our children on self-destruction.  What do they all have in common?  They hate America, they hate Christianity, they hate Israel and they want a Godless future for your children and grandchildren.

3 San Jose

Finally, when you look at your children and your grandchildren—I know you ask yourself… what kind of a world they will live in? I know I do!  Will they have the America we had?  Will they suffer without freedom in a gloomy land?  We would give anything to secure their future.  This is our great chance to do that very thing…to be a part of a national awakening that will restore America as one nation under God.  It is the right thing to do.

That is why I began this tour of California believing it is most important in our history.   We are fighting for your family and mine–and for our nation’s survival!

Sunday Night April 17th we leveled our first major hit at the forces of darkness in California.  We joined forces with Sonny and Linda Lara and invaded the heart of San Jose.  Youth overflowed the building.  There is no way to fairly represent to you the needs that were sitting in that room.  Killers, addicts, atheists and just plain teenagers sat together as the glorious power of Jesus unfolded.

The Holy Spirit armed me with the message.  The sword of the Word of God was unsheathed.  The presence of God became a chain breaking, mind freeing, soul saving weapon.  Our plan was to surrender to the Spirit of God—allow His undeniable gifts of power to prove Christ to the audience, and then call them to Christ.

Instead, I preached a concise word and then called them forward.  They came to be saved!  But that was not all…many youth who knew Jesus came to be blessed and receive more power to face their future.  Then youth began praying for youth.

What we were watching in that moment is what you and I have been warring for in prayer.  We have asked Jesus for a youth movement to begin.  We want the young people to seize the momentum and take it to their generation.

I will not let Satan have this generation!  Signs and Wonders have the rightful place of proving—to an indoctrinated and vulnerable youth culture—that Jesus is the Son of God.

Many healings took place but there was one that brought a collective gasp to the entire audience.  She was in the back.  She exploded when the Word of Knowledge was given.  “A mysterious skin disease had taken over your body.  Doctors have no idea how to treat you.”  With that, she bolted to the front screaming “it’s me, it’s me!” 

Then she told of the hell she was living in.  Now, she told us the body-consuming pain and rashes vanished.  Standing there, God revealed more…she had deteriorated joints and bones.  Again, she cried out in confirmation!  Again she felt power surge from her head to toe as sickness was driven out.

This was our first night.  Tonight we meet in Manteca.  Once again the house will be filled with young people.  Once again, Jehovah God will be present to heal and deliver.  I can’t wait!

We are conducting special operations in the State that has belched out more deception to the world than any other.  I am not going to stop until the strongholds of Satan are devastated by the preaching of the Cross and the mighty miracles of Jesus!  I will not let Satan have this generation!

THE TOUR CONTINUES TONIGHT IN MANTECA!

Manteca tonight

 

 

END TIME VALUES

END TIME VALUES

By David Wilkerson

God is doing a secret work in our day. He is raising up a hungry people who are growing more and more dissatisfied with the fleshly, worldly system as it now exists—even in the church.

These God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

I see it all over the nation today — disillusioned Christians searching for reality. The people in the pew are beginning to fast and pray. They are the ones who now weep between the porch and the altar. And, they are crying out for more depth and more of eternal values from the pulpit. If the minister of their church goes on in some egocentric way, pursuing expensive dreams, they will go out looking for a place where their deepest spiritual needs will be met.

I know it to be a fact that numerous ministers share my own desperate hunger for a deeper work of God in the church and ministry today. There seems to be a secret underground network of men of God who are stripping themselves down, humbling themselves, and getting back into the secret closet of prayer. Recently I have met a number of ministers, of various denominations, who are praying up to 6 and 8 hours a day. They are fasting. Some of these dear men of God grieve over conditions in the church today. God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.praying

 

 

Be honest, saints of God. Are you really satisfied with the religious system today, and especially in your church? Some are. But most are not getting their needs met. I believe we have gotten off the track of true spirituality. The spiritual leanness of so many Christians today is a direct result of getting into the flesh — trying to do kingdom work in our own power, with worldly methods. Our values are becoming perverted.

Shame on us! We are substituting temporal values for eternal ones. We have evangelists and teachers who specialize in telling believers how much God owes them. Material blessings are magnified, spiritual ones minimized. According to some, it is our right to be rich, successful, and immune to all pain.

These teachers point to themselves as examples of prosperity. “Look at me,” it is said, “I have proved the promises. I live well. I am never sick — I have no unpaid bills. I drive the best cars. I live in the finest home. It works for me, so believe as I do and you can have what I have.”

Eyes As a Flame of Fire

 

Beloved, how much of that teaching will stand up before the judgment seat of Christ? There is a growing inner knowledge in me that most of our modern, self-centered teaching is going to be consumed before the flaming eyes of the Son of God.

John, in his vision of the Son of God, saw an awesome sight.

“…his head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…” (Rev. 1:14).

John goes on to say,

“…I fell at his feet as dead…” (v.17).

Will any of us, as teachers and evangelists, be able to stand before those piercing eyes of flaming fire? Can any Christian look Him in the eyes? No ego can withstand His gaze. No self-centered dreams can go unexposed. All secret sin will be exposed as a terrible abomination in His sight.

All the things we have accumulated will burn. All the great works we have done for Him, with such zeal and sweat, will they also burn?

burn

 

How important is what you are doing to God’s kingdom? God can give you the desire of your heart, but send leanness to your soul. God assisted Israel in their desire to have a king. But He later disciplined them for their selfish motives.

Are you in some kind of competitive race? Are you doing things for God just to keep up with others? In eternity, looking back—how really necessary will it all be then?

Children of God, what is the good of what you and I are doing? Do we have motives based on eternal values? If we truly believe the end of all things is upon us, what should we be doing about purging our values? What is it going to take to wake us up and get us out of the drift toward ease and comfort?

I confess to you that it has taken years for me to live only for eternal values. I grieve when I think back of the time and money I wasted trying to build something tangible for God. I wanted something people could see. How important I thought those buildings were to God’s kingdom. I convinced myself, “God deserves the best.” He does—but not in bricks, mortar, and steel—He deserves the best of our time and yieldedness. Thank God for the day the Spirit revealed to me how shallow my values were! I spent 20 years planning programs, building buildings, running all over the world trying to show God how important to His kingdom I was. All the while my reputation grew as a minister of faith and vision. Yet, after each new project, I felt a letdown. No sooner was one building finished, and I was already planning another. I was an idea-man for God. I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak. God had to expose all my values. He turned His flaming eyes on my soul and showed me I had better reject my old way of doing things, or be lost in a maze of self-imposed activity.

Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bondslave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.

The Final Shaking

What will happen when God begins to shake everything that can be shaken? When all false values tumble and earthly dreams and plans lose their meaning?

Sadly, many of God’s children are going to end up bewildered and confused. As the world moves into the era of economic collapse – when persecution falls even upon civilized nations – when governments are convulsing and tottering on the brink of total collapse — how many Christians will survive the test?

test

A lot of God’s people are going to wonder where they are. Ministers who are caught up in the trap of human vision will leave the ministry confused, all their work to no avail. Multitudes will be asking, “What’s it all about? What’s happening? What does the future hold? Where are we? Who can tell us the mind of God?”

We are now moving swiftly into what we know as the end time. We had better be in possession of a heavenly vision of holiness and humility. The testing time is coming down upon us with lightning speed. It is going to take more than a doctrine or a particular teaching to see us through. We are going to have to really know the Lord in His fullness. We had better have our eyes on eternal values. Only spiritual things are going to remain. Only spiritual people will understand what is happening and not faint. We must be linked up with the mind of the Spirit so we will not be thrown by the radical changes that are coming. We must bring ourselves, to the place we have nothing to lose. We need to walk away from all the junk in our lives — we are going to lose it all anyhow.

How much of God do you possess in this final hour of disintegration and fear? How earthly are you? How transitory are your desires? Have your values been sifted and purged by the Spirit of almighty God? How much of the world interests you — how much time is consumed in chasing after things that don’t matter now?

End-Time Restlessness

You will know when the Spirit is calling you out of the shallow Christianity about you. You will know when the Lord is wanting to touch you in a supernatural way. You will know when He is calling you out of the ordinary. He will stir your nest. An unexplainable divine restlessness will come upon you. You will become disinterested in what you have been doing. All your successes will leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled. Nothing that you have or do will meet the need in you for reality. You will sense that a very deep need in you has not yet been met — questions that have never been answered. A shadow of dissatisfaction will be cast over your entire life.

That is a mark of God’s dealing with you in a supernatural way, trying to get you to turn loose of all that you hold dear. It is His way of showing you that your needs are really spiritual and not physical.

You will feel His magnetic pull back to prayer — back to spiritual hunger, to broken-ness and self-emptying. Soon, you will be touching those satisfying eternal values and your soul will cry out, “This is what I’ve been wanting all along. He has taken away the earthly and replaced it with the spiritual.”

Saints, the key word is hunger. He has promised to fill the hungry heart. I have never been so hungry for God. That hunger almost overwhelms me at times. Every waking hour my heart reaches out to Him. Because His thoughts are always on my mind, the things of the world have lost their value. I see things as Paul did — nothing but the dung of this world. I am becoming a nobody—it feels so good.

Do you also sense this call to a deeper walk with God? Is your soul hungry for more of the Spirit in your life? If so, end the civil war in you — by yielding everything you have to the Master. The misery goes the very moment you surrender all to Him. You can know true peace and happiness the moment you quit trying to be somebody. Want nothing but Jesus, and your life will take on a new meaning.

rest

Don’t Waste Another Hour

My greatest grief is that it took so long for me to get out of God’s way. I wasted years doing things simply out of compassion. I was spiritually blind, not knowing that God must clearly direct every step I take. I had an international pulpit — preaching to thousands — with crowded altars. Thank God He showed me there was much more. The numbers and the crowds meant nothing. I wanted to see people get deeper into the Lord. I wanted nothing more to do with shallow decisions. God had to totally change my way of thinking, and now, like Gideon, I know that big is not always best.

Don’t let it happen to you. Take stock of your life and values. Shut yourself up with God alone in the secret closet. Pray diligently for spiritual hunger. Ask God to give you a spirit of sorrow for wasting so much time. Pray for a greater desire for His Word. Pray for a broken heart. Pray for a purging and a purifying work in your life. Then get ready to be cast into the fire of testing.

“…I will purge the sons of Levi…” (Mal. 3:3)

I can tell you it’s worth it! The purging will not seem joyous, but rather grievous. But you will soon glorify the Lord for the results in your life. All the anxiety will be gone. All worldly ambition will die. Your spiritual eyes will be opened to truth. The Spirit will give you revelation knowledge. You will exchange the riches of this world for the true riches of Christ Jesus. You will wake up each morning with an over-flowing joy. Your soul will cry out “I found what my soul has been longing for. Rest–beautiful rest in my Lord.”

You can then say with David, the Psalmist — “In his presence is there is fullness of joy; at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore…” (Ps.16:11).

Proof Scriptures

“…for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ So then everyone of us shall give an account of himself to God…”(Rom. 14:10-12).

“…The end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer…” (I Pet. 4:7).

“… The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light…” (Rom. 13:12).

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build, upon this foundation gold stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire…” (I Cor. 3: 11-15).

Now if any man build, upon this foundation gold stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire…” (I Cor. 3: 11-15).

Strong Delusion

Strong Delusion

America, you are under a strong delusion. The terrifying part is who may be doing it.

by Mario Murillo

No one can explain why.  Why would America veer into this mindless frenzy to pull her own greatness out by the roots?

-Why would a generation reelect a man that plunged them into poverty, violence and chaos?

-Why would a generation of black pastors trade in their Bibles to stand with the most blatantly anti-church agenda in American history?

-How can you explain a populace that gleefully opens their border to welcome murderers, rapists and drug dealers to come and ravage innocent citizens?

-Why would you aging hippies and 70’s protesters stand with a president who embodies all of the tyranny you fought against?   How bizarre to end up being the anti-free speech movement.

why

Why, America, are you okay with a state owned media that will not investigate the crimes of Benghazi, the IRS, the Justice Department, and the NSA?

What is up when a man can steal your credit card–in history’s greatest case of identity theft– run up a $19 trillion national debt, and you still smile at him?

Why has science allowed itself to become a tool of the state?  Scientists will not level with us on anything that will challenge the agenda.   What will legalization of every form of sexual perversion do to children?  We won’t know because it is “hateful” to ask.

What is really going on with the weather and why do you want to spend vast amounts of our hard earned money to enforce a pact with all the nations of the world?  “Trust us,” they say, “we know best.”

What is this insane celebration of sexual deviance that blasphemes the civil rights movement?

Jonathan Cahn, Rabbi, Pastor, Bible teacher and author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” says the June 26 Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage in all 50 states marks the formal end to Christian America. Barring a “miracle of God,” he says in the 4th of July message, “the die has been cast.”

What drug was the Supreme Court on when it violated every oath it had ever taken to ramrod Gay Marriage on all Americans?   They created a law even though the constitution declares that they do not have that power.  They even admitted that they created a precedent that will bring polygamy and adult/child marriage to the court.

Why would we declare war on Jesus Christ and protect the images of Mohammed?  What form of mad double-mindedness denounces the church as hateful while it protects Islamic extremists?

There is only one explanation: America, you are under a strong mass delusion.  No nation willfully abandons its greatness in exchange for perversion, poverty and misery unless there has been a spirit of delusion unleashed in the land.

Obama-angry-10

Stella Morabito said, “In fact, many newly propagandized ideas seem to have taken America by storm just in the past decade or so. Same-sex marriage is only one of those ideas. Transgenderism is now eclipsing that notion, and its propaganda techniques—wrapped in the language of civil rights—are getting Americans on board with the idea of erasing all sex distinctions in law, including their own. It’s as though Americans are buying into a fast-talking sales pitch without being allowed to read the print, whether it’s large print or small.”

But it is even worse than she says.  Not only are Americans deluded, they disconnect from their own suffering in order to keep the lie alive.  I give money to the homeless a lot.  Try this… ask the next panhandler who they voted for in the last two elections.   See if they remember having to beg before this presidency.   Ask them if there is any regret.  The befuddled look you get will say it all.

There are ways to measure a generation’s decline.  Peter Marshall, the legendary Chaplain of the United States Senate, once drew a comparison between the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and the sinking of the Athenia in 1939.

As the Titanic sank, the men on board sang the hymn Nearer my God to Thee.  The men on board the Athenia sang Roll out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun.   Peter Marshall said, “You can see what has happened to a nation’s faith – you can see what has happened to the faith of people in thirty years, can’t you? Facing eternity, to the strains of the beer-barrel polka, what a commentary, upon the faith, of immortal souls.”

THE MEN ON THE TITANIC SANG THE HYMN “NEARER MY GOD TO THEE”  WHILE THE MEN ON THE ATHENIA SANG “THE BEER BARREL POLKA”

But what would Peter Marshall think of us now?  What would he say about this comparison?  In 1976, a generation declares Bruce Jenner a national hero for winning the Olympic Decathlon.  “Jenner is twirling the nation like a baton; he and his wife, Chrystie, are so high up on the pedestal of American heroism, it would take a crane to get them down,” wrote Tony Kornheiser in The New York Times in 1977.

Now we contrast that with 39 years later.  A generation hails him as a hero for becoming a woman.  Our president leads the cheer saying, “It takes courage.”  This is our new definition of courage…this is our new heroism.

2 Thessalonians 2:11,12 declares,  “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

There is one very big question to answer.  Is our mass delusion leading to the judgment of God or is the mass delusion judgment in itself?   It is chilling to consider.  We have always assumed that America’s plunge into moral insanity was the work of the devil.

If you think that Satan can send delusion, think about what God can do to delude minds into destroying themselves.  Is this the first stage of our judgment?

What if God has turned America over to a strong delusion in order to get her to believe a lie?  Masses of Americans have come to believe that the most absurd, destructive and mindless way to live is okay with them.  How could they do this without a spirit of delusion?  How could they keep going unless they were catatonic zombies marching to the beat of a national hallucination?

hallucination

What if that delusion extends to the church?  Is mass delusion the reason for the apathy and silence of American Christians?  Doesn’t delusion explain how we can have giddy Christian gatherings in the face of certain national doom?

Why is your pastor not crying out to the nation to repent?  Why is there no chorus of prayer asking for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit?  How can any voice enter a pulpit at this time without a sense of urgency?  Is it because a spirit is on them that holds them in denial?

We have every reason to believe that prior generations of Christians would be staging mass rallies, crying out with fasting and prayer.  If you announce such a thing today, believers will not show up.

hillary vicious

American Christians binge on flattering sermons and exotic emotionalism.  Some are even getting drunk and carousing while the nation burns.  How can they do that without a strong delusion?

America, it feels intelligent to bask in this new agenda.  You can feel hip legalizing everything while making God illegal. Take a closer look.  Your heart, mind and emotions are deteriorating under the influence of the culture.  You are losing your children, your free time, independent thought and even logic to this horrific lie.

You know that when you invited God out, you invited misery in.   You know that One Nation under God was not just a motto; it was a catalyst to prosperity, justice and happiness. That is what getting right with God does.

Yet, the delusion runs so deep that we cannot see the next step in our destruction is Hillary Clinton.  She has already screamed at us that Benghazi does not matter.  She has already surpassed Obama avoiding questions and hiding her true intentions.

Peter stood before Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost and cried out, “Save yourself from this perverse generation (Act 2:40).” It was a call to escape mass delusion.

There may be a thread of mercy in all of this. Like the father, wanting to make his son stop smoking, made him smoke a whole pack of cigarettes until the boy threw up.  Maybe God is letting us overdose in this swamp in the hopes that we will vomit out this insanity before it is too late.

On the other hand…what if we are under judgment and have been turned over to mass delusion for our destruction?    In either case, why would you read this, walk away and not repent?  Isn’t that proof of delusion?  Right now, kneel and pray and tell God that you choose life.

Drug Smuggler Sues United States because of Border Patrol Dog bite

DRUG SMUGGLER SUES OVER MEAN DRUG DOG

Drug Smuggler Sues Over Mean Drug Dog
Inform

A convicted drug smuggler is now suing the US government because, during his arrest, he alleges injuries were caused by a border patrol agent’s drug-sniffing dog.

Jose Manuel Marino-Najera was arrested in 2013 after the US Border Patrol apprehended him when he was found in possession of a 50-pound load of marijuana. He was convicted and served 180 days in prison for the crime.

But now, Marino-Najera is suing the federal government because a police dog bit him in the arm during his arrest.

According to his lawyer, the muscles in Marino-Najera’s arm were “severely damaged” by the dog.

Attorney William Risner alleges that the officers allowed the dog to go wild and didn’t curb him. “These guys, they let him chew on his arm, and he’s permanently crippled,” the lawyer said.

Marino-Najera, a native of Mexico, said that he can no longer ply his trade as a mason due to the injuries.

The arrest occurred in Arizona near the Tohono O’odham reservation close to the border with Mexico.

While the complaint Marino-Najera filed makes no mention of a K-9 unit, he alleges he was asleep under a tree when police found him. He alleges it was then the dog attacked him.
