Psaki jokes about secret migrant kids’ flights: ‘Earlier than you might like’

The White House tried to make light Tuesday of The Post’s exposing the secret, nighttime flights that President Biden’s administration is using to ferry unaccompanied migrant kids from the Texas border region — snarking to a reporter they were merely “earlier than you might like.”
