California Gov. Jerry Brown has slammed the Trump administration’s latest salvo against the Golden State — the Justice Department announced Tuesday night it is suing to block state laws that extend protections to people living in the U.S. illegally — claiming it’s a move that will “further divide and polarize America.”

“At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America,” the Democratic lawmaker tweeted.

Then, in a direct shout-out to the attorney general, Brown wrote, “Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”

The defendants named in the lawsuit are the state of California, Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

Justice Department officials said Tuesday that three state laws, which in part bar police from asking people about their citizenship status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities, are unconstitutional. The Justice Department claimed that these laws prevent federal agents from doing their jobs.
