Michael Avenatti on Sunday offered legal services to migrant parents who have been separated from their children at the southern border. 

"If anyone knows of a parent that has had their child taken from them at the border and not returned, please have them contact me as I am entering this fight. This outrageous conduct must be brought to an immediate end," Avenatti said in a tweet.

Daniels was paid $130,000 by Cohen weeks before the 2016 presidential election to keep silent about the allegations.

The tweet comes as the Trump administration faces a growing backlash over its policy of separating migrant families who illegally cross the border.
