Oklahoma City, OK asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: What does it mean if I have a charge showing on my us-fbi criminal record with no subsection?

A: INA section 212 is the grounds on inadmissibility. I would guess that your stop and detention at the border constitutes an expedited removal which is in the records of CBP, not USCIS. Furthermore, if you used a false document in order to try and gain entry into the US, you committed immigration fraud and if you used a false US passport, your made a false representation as a US citizen from which there is no relief or waiver possible.
