Footage of the incident, which took place last month, resurfaced online in recent days and one Facebook post with the clip had almost 2 million views at time of publication.

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said Tuesday that "a culture of bigotry & hate" that has been condoned in the USA "feels unleashed", citing a video showing a man harassing a woman for wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt.

Eventually the first officer on the scene takes notes of Irizarry's account of the incident and says that he was at the scene due to the separate incident, noting that she was not being attacked though acknowledging she felt threatened.

You're "not going to change us", the harasser told the woman - though it wasn't clear exactly whom he meant by "us". The world is not going to change the United States of America.

"I'm not trying to change anyone, I'm just trying to come here for a birthday", Irizarry responds.

Mia Irizarry posted the video of the incident that shows the man, who is facing charges, verbally harassing her at a pavilion that she said she rented with the appropriate permits. "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America". Irizarry insisted as she backed away from him, which only made the man more irate.

"Can you please step away from me?"

When the man again tries to get in her face, her brother arrives and intervenes. "He basically got in my face, damn near nearly touched me", Irizarry says in the video.

About 10 minutes into the Irizarry's 36-minute video, more police officers arrive.

The Forest Preserves, which oversee 70,000 acres in Cook County, released a statement on the incident, saying "no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves".

A video that went viral on Monday has earned a Chicago police officer desk duty for an incident that happened a month ago.

Video of the June 14 incident shows the officer didn't respond.

The hearing, which will not be open to the public, could be delayed if Connor asks for more time to prepare.

"The intoxicated individual involved in the incident was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct", the district wrote on Monday. "In this case, a USA citizen questions the citizenship of another USA citizen and American law-enforcement just sits back and watches".

'He failed to deescalate the situation and therefore did not ensure a citizen's safety'.

"This is not the America we all believe in", he said.

"We have worked very hard since 2010 to make the Forest Preserves of Cook County a welcoming and safe place for all", she tweeted.

Puerto Rico was hit by a devastating storm, Hurricane Maria, last September. "I was denied entry into the Capitol complex by U.S. Capitol Police despite being a Congressman with identification, because my daughter was carrying a Puerto Rican flag and the officer doubted that I could possibly be a Member of Congress". People on Twitter called the officer "worthless" and noted that Puerto Rico is a United States commonwealth and its people American citizens. "People need to understand that".
