Porn star Stormy Daniels announced Thursday afternoon on Twitter that she will be heading to the border to help her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, in his new effort to help migrant children whose parents were arrested after they crossed the U.S. border illegally.
Daniels, who has been on a publicity tour of strip clubs in the Midwest, tweeted that she had been too busy to help sooner, but would be leaving for the border next week:
I am headed down in a week. Don’t worry. Just figuring out my best course of action to maximize my resources. https://t.co/kT64pWZ4QN

Daniels has been fêted by the left ever since she emerged as an opponent to President Donald Trump, accusing him of having an adulterous one-night-stand with her in 2006 while his wife, Melania, was pregnant. Daniels signed a non-disclosure agreement in return for $130,000, but is seeking to have the agreement voided by the courts.
Last month, the city of West Hollywood, California, gave Daniels the key to the city — though the mayor who presented her with the award, John Duran, had been forced to settle a $500,000 sexual harassment claim in 2016.
Avenatti has been a ubiquitous presence on cable news over the past few months until recently, when his law firm ran into controversy, and world events pushed his legal crusade against Trump out of the “A block” in daily headlines.
He arrived at the border several days ago and promptly took up the cause of 50 illegal alien mothers who allege that they were separated from their children.
