McAleenan announced the changes Tuesday, the same day his agency reported the death of an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy late Christmas Eve. Her death - which brought down heavy criticism on USA immigration authorities - is also under investigation.
A 7-year-old Guatemalan girl died earlier this month after being apprehended by border agents. He said the order will focus on children under 10.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release that the boy died shortly after midnight Tuesday.
"This is why I asked Congress on Tuesday to change our laws so that the United States is not incentivizing families to take this unsafe path", McAleenan said.
The border patrol agency is also considering seeking "surge" medical assistance from the U.S. Coast Guard, and potentially requesting more aid from the Department of Defense, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Health and Human Services to assist the U.S. Border Patrol with supplemental medical capabilities, according to the statement.
The agency said the cause of death had not been determined, and that the Department of Homeland Security's inspector-general and the Guatemalan government had been notified. He was taken with his father to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a common cold and given Tylenol (paracetamol). CBP officers and the Border Patrol remain on the job despite the shutdown.
Radio traffic indicated that the agent had arrived at the medical center, where he was met by hospital staff.
According to the ministry, the boy and his father entered the United States via El Paso, Texas, on December 18 and were transferred to a border patrol station in Alamogordo on December 23.
Earlier in December, seven-year-old Jakelin Caal, also from Guatemala, died after being detained along with her father by United States border agents in a remote part of New Mexico.
He was evaluated for release and found to have a 103 degree fever and was held for continued observation.
A CBP spokesperson could not immediately answer how many children are in the agency's custody. Before dying on Monday night, Felipe spent a week in America. Amoxicillin is a commonly prescribed antibiotic.
The child's father declined further medical assistance later that evening when the boy began vomiting because the boy was reportedly feeling better.
Jakelin Caal's December 8 death reignited debate in the United States over immigration policy and the treatment of migrants.
Guatemala's Consul General in Phoenix, Oscar Padilla Lam, met with the boy's father in Almagordo to "hear his version of the facts", according to the statement.
A congressional oversight trip last week to the CBP station where the girl and her father were detained raised "serious concerns" about facility conditions and the "lack of adequate medical supplies, equipment and resources to properly treat migrants and the agents working there", Castro said.
Her dad has been identified as 29-year-old Nery Caal in American media.
