Illegal immigration was a central theme of Trump's presidential bid, and he repeatedly invoked the issue ahead of the November 6 midterm elections as a caravan of migrants from Central America made their way toward the United States and deployed some 5,800 us troops to the border.
McAleenan told reporters earlier Monday that as many as 1,000 people that were part of a migrant caravan traveling through Central America and Mexico sought to enter the United States illegally.
Meanwhile, some Central Americans have approached federal police officers and the Beta Group - a unit of the National Institute of Migration specialised in providing guidance and assistance to migrants - upon learning that there is an option for people who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin.
Trump also told Politico that he saw little need to work with Congress over immigration reforms to address the roughly 700,000 so-called Dreamers, young adults who were brought to the United States illegally as children, and would instead see how court challenges play out.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, Trump insisted that some migrants had "grabbed" random children to increase their chances of being granted asylum.
The President later also denied that the tear gas was used against children.

"The Democrats would like people to believe that they're legitimate asylum seekers, but legitimate legitimate asylum seekers don't attack border guards".
The agents' response - firing tear gas into the crowd - triggered widespread outrage and rekindled complaints that the Border Patrol, bolstered by President Donald Trump's tough talk, is too quick to use force, particularly when responding to people throwing rocks. The chaos followed what began as a peaceful march to appeal for the U.S. to speed processing of asylum claims.
Four agents were hit with rocks, but due to their protective gear they were not seriously injured, McAleenan said.
