The woman, Mia Irizarry, was celebrating her 24th birthday at the Forest Preserves of Cook County on June 14 when the man accosted her and asked her about her shirt.

Irizarry says Puerto Rico is part of the United States and the man approaches her multiple times.

On Tuesday, the Forest Preserves of Cook County posted to Facebook that the man was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

You're "not going to change us", the harasser told the woman - though it wasn't clear exactly whom he meant by "us".

The police officer turned and walked back to his police vehicle without responding, as the irate man followed her out onto the grass. You're not going to change the United States of America.

A then-unidenfied man, pictured, was shown harassing the woman, questioning her citizenship. She tells Connor she feels "highly uncomfortable", but in the video, he appears to turn and walk in the other direction. Irizarry insisted as she backed away from him, which only made the man more irate. A female officer asked for the man's ID and can be heard in the video saying, "You don't come here harassing people".

"A woman being verbally abused for simply wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag is another example of how racists feel emboldened in their attacks on minorities and immigrants thanks to the current administration", Martinez said.

The agency adds, "The intoxicated individual involved in the incident was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct". As Mia's video went viral, Forest Preserves informed the public that the officer who failed to protect Mia is under investigation and now on desk duty.

Irizarry is heard in the video telling a female police officer her account of what happened, and how Connor "literally was just standing there watching the whole thing happen like nothing".

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello saw the video and also condemned it. I do not feel comfortable with him here, is there anything you can do?

"We take such incidents seriously, and if the investigation confirms the officer did not take appropriate steps to ensure public safety, disciplinary action will follow". "These people had just been ignored and kind of left on the side, and no one was rushing in to help".

"I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior", Rossello posted in a tweet.

Cummings said another union attorney who is representing Connor has not had a full sit-down interview with him yet, and neither has the Forest Preserve District Police Department. The officer is seen turning the other way. Another officer instructs Trybus to sit at a different table, while officers talk to a man who appears to be a friend or acquaintance of Trybus. Although Puerto Ricans are USA citizens, they must register in one of the 50 states to vote in presidential elections. After the incident, we immediately launched an investigation pursuant to our personnel policies into the response of our officer.

"In this case, a United States citizen questions the citizenship of another U.S. citizen and American law-enforcement just sits back and watches", he said.
