Given the border patrol comments regarding obtaining a visa, it appears you entered as part of he Visa Waiver Program. Tourists traveling on passports from certain countries do not need to obtain visas, BUT are limited to a 90 day stay that cannot be extended. If you entered without a visa and overstayed, that could be the cause of your problem.

Go to the US consulate to get your visa renewed and make sure of the dates of travel in the future

Sounds like they're unhappy that you violated the visa waiver program by one day. Perhaps it's time to apply for a B visitor visa to avoid future complications.
