President Donald Trump's travel ban could be headed to the U.S. Supreme Court after a federal appeals panel on Thursday unanimously rejected the White House's request to reinstate his controversial executive order. Trump tweeted, "see you in court" shortly after the decision was announced.
The travel ban will remain suspended... for now.
So, what happens next?
Trump's travel ban could be headed to the Supreme Court
According to the NY Times, Trump's administration could file an emergency application to the Supreme Court in the coming days.
If so, a decision to reinstate the ban or to continue to block it could come as early as next week.
Without Trump's nominee Neil Gorsuch in place, the high court is still ideologically split 4-to-4, which could lead to a tie and the lower court decision standing.

Trump also stated last night, "we're going to win the case."
Hillary Clinton was one of the more prominent Democrats to react to the 3-0 ruling.
