Sounds like it’s his go-to threat. Unless he is physically making plans for a move he’s more than likely just bluffing.

Ultimately he’s poor at parenting and this is the only ‘stick’ he can waive to get you to do what he wants. It’s a common tactic used by African/Asian parents born out of frustration.

I’d ignore it and give him as little reason to take issue with you as possible.
