Actress Oliva Wilde is done with Donald Trump and his views on immigration.  

At a screening for "Ellis," a short film about Ellis Island, Wilde shared her thoughts on both the film and the Republican presidential candidate. 

"It made me think of the current refugee crisis," said Wilde, speaking about the film in an interview with Page Six. "[America] was a beacon of hope for so many ... yet some in this country have developed this xenophobia that totally conflicts with what we’re based on." 

"The fact that we can have someone running for president who openly projects that xenophobia is really sickening," she added, "particularly when you look at a film like this and remember our roots."

It's pretty obvious that Wilde is referring to Trump, who she's spoken out against in a roundabout way on Twitter. 

Trump, who referred to Mexicans as "rapists" in the speech announcing his presidential bid, has also made it clear that he wants to limit the amount of refugees and asylum-seekers the United States accepts. The businessman has openly voiced his disdain for immigrants, saying that he wants a wall between Mexico and the U.S. -- with the bill footed by Mexico. 

Part of the reason he wants immigrants out? Apparent gang violence

"A lot of the gangs that you see -- it doesn’t hopefully pertain to you guys so much -- but when you look at Baltimore, when you look at Chicago and Ferguson and a lot of areas, you know a lot of these gang members are illegal immigrants," said Trump in an interview with Alabama radio station FM Talk 1065. "They’re going to be gone. We are going to get them out so fast, out of this country so fast."
