A meeting in the village on Thursday night heard that police and fire services had not been consulted about the plans before they were unveiled.
A statement from Linton Parish Council read: “We represent a community that has demonstrated compassion for the less fortunate in many ways in the past, and will continue to do so.
“While from a human rights perspective we know this is absolutely right, we also know that this number of adult males together in one place will be overwhelming for a small village, no matter what their circumstances or where they are from.”
Mr Hollinrake, MP for Thirsk and Malton, said: “The meeting compounded the issue.
“It was good of Home Office officials to be there, but I don’t think anyone will be reassured - quite the opposite.
“Police haven’t been consulted and the money will have to be found to police it, including things like CCTV which haven’t been budgeted.”
A Home Office spokesperson said the centre will have its own healthcare and faith services which will “minimise impact on the local community.”
They continued: “Anyone accommodated at Linton will have undergone a robust screening process, and the Home Office is committed to working closely with the local community to ensure the site operates safely and securely.”
