Mr. McAleenan said there are more than 16,000 people in custody of Customs and Border Protection, in facilities designed in the 1980s and 1990s when the flow was mostly adults who stayed for just a few hours.
Saturday's statement reaffirms CBP's earlier statements on the matter.
Acting homeland security secretary Kevin McAleenan acknowledged Sunday that the Trump administration had considered sending migrants from Texas to Florida but ultimately decided not to because it wouldn't have been "an effective use of resources".

Shipping some to other locations was meant to relieve the pressure on areas such as western Arizona, southern Texas and El Paso at the Texas-New Mexico line, which are particularly stressed by the surge.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have begun flying migrant families from the Rio Grande Valley to San Diego, California. The detainees must be moved to places that can process them. Those locations are primarily along the northern and coastal border, the official said. A top official said last week that 50 percent of agents' time is now spent on transportation, providing medical care, feeding and otherwise catering to migrants, rather than out on the line patroling.
"All we are looking at right now is where we have the capacity and the bandwidth for the computer systems, and the computer systems to be able to do the processing", the official said.

Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch slammed what he said was a "stunning amount of confusion" over the administration's immigration policy.
Earlier this month, CBP saidmore people had been apprehended illegally crossing the US-Mexico border this fiscal year than any year since 2009.
"Your agency transporting people to these cities, is that going to happen?" With the number of illegal migrants detained at the border continuing to reach record levels, there is no relief in sight.
DeSantis' spokeswoman Helen Ferre said on Sunday that the governor spoke to Trump on Saturday, two days after local officials said they had been notified by U.S. Border Patrol that 1,000 migrants would soon be sent to Palm Beach and Broward counties.
The administration initially denied that the plan was under active consideration.
"Not by airplanes or any other way", he said in a tweet. Other cities are being discussed as options for processing them.
"They're not too happy about it", he said. "I'm proud to tell you that was my sick idea".
