Spanish term or phrase: el me quiere mudar el muchacho.
I would like to know the best translation of this phrase from American English into Dominican Spanish. Is okay to translate it as "he want to move my son out of the apartment?

It's a translation of a phone conversation between two Dominican People living in The US.

Here is the full sentence:

Voy hacer que el se vaya solito porque el me quiere mudar el muchacho. El me dijo:¿ tu quieres que yo rente un apartamento allí mismo?
