Huge error/mistype by a CBP officer is now on my permanent record

I was applying for my TN at YUL the other day. I was allowed to withdraw and I was fingerprinted and a sworn statement was taken. The CBP officer typed my answers as I spoke, and I was told to sign the statement without reviewing what he had typed. I didn't think much of it because I was truthful and didn't have anything to hide.

I didn't receive the printed record until after I had re-entered Canada. I read it, and the officer mistyped my birthdate and multiple answers to extremely serious questions.

There were many inaccuracies (at least 6 questions were mistyped/did not reflect what I had said), but the worst is that he typed out that my answer to the question "Have you ever been convicted of a crime in Canada or elsewhere in the world as "Yes". I have NOT been convicted of any crime and there's no chance I would have EVER said yes to that question.

I'm just so floored by this and exhausted by the way I've been treated by CBP - I've sent it to an immigration lawyer but I have no idea how to think about its consequences.

Reddit, if you have any advice... I'm all ears.

CBP Officers - if there are any of you out there, PLEASE don't fuck around with people's lives like this. Take the extra moment to REVIEW What you are typing on sworn statements. I am disgusted by this gross misuse of authority.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
