Irizarry tries several times to explain to the man that Puerto Rico is actually a part of the United States, but in all of his returns to accost her, he does not appear to listen or understand this.
The June 14 video, which runs 36 minutes long, shows an irate man approaching Mia Irizarry as she waited for her family at a picnic area in the Forest Preserves of Cook County to celebrate her 24th birthday.
In the video, an intoxicated white man berates her and repeatedly tells her she shouldn't be wearing her shirt while questioning her citizenship.
The man again approaches Irizarry in a threatening manner while she begs him to stay away. "Are you a United States citizen?"
A woman setting up a birthday picnic at an IL park was repeatedly harassed by an angry stranger for wearing a T-shirt saying "Puerto Rico" in America.
As she was making the preparations, the man approached her and demanded to know why she was wearing her shirt, which also had the words "Puerto Rico" written on it.
Other officers arrived on the scene, and while they were responding to a different report, Irizarry finally got the help she needed from them. She says they finished 16 homes in 10 days.
"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves", the park service wrote.
"The investigation is ongoing and the officer involved has been assigned to desk duty pending the outcome", the park said.

Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon final months after returning from maternity leave
Serena Williams longs to tell her daughter how she bound her longtime label, champion, with her newer one, mother. Goerges, playing her first Slam semifinal, sent a forehand flying wide off the sidelines to concede serve.
Just a few meters outside the pavilion, an officer stood with his hands tucked in his belt, watching the encounter.
"As you can see, the police are not even - he's not even grabbing him", Irizarry said.
"We will be looking into this incident as our offices in DC are in contact with local and state authorities, demanding that this officer be expelled from the police force", Rossello said.
A female officer tells Trybus, "You don't come here harassing people", adding, "When you're drunk, you don't belong here". "I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior", he said. 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.
And, adding a bit of customer relations to help make things right, the county gave Irizarry zoo passes to the Brookfield Zoo, which is owned by the Cook County Forest Preserve District. Puerto Rican residents have been American citizens since 1917 and have the right to vote in United States presidential primaries, but not in presidential elections.
"I am very sorry for the experience the young woman had to (endure) and I'm further troubled by the lack of response and action by the initial officer on the scene".
Rosello also called on Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to take the matter "into her hands".
"This is America", he says.
