I attended all the events I was invited to either by the secretary [Marty] Walsh staff, [the Orange County Labor Federation]or your employees or [Irvine Unified School District]. “

“I was disappointed that despite our staff alerting the police days before the event that the extremists were openly declaring their intent to disrupt the town hall, the officers on the day of the accident were hundreds of meters away and did not immediately intervene when the fighting broke out,” Wong said.

“Since then, Representative Porter and our office have worked productively with the Irvine Police Department, including the congresswoman hosting the new police chief in her office for a constructive and collaborative meeting,” he continued.
