1. It isn't a ban, it is simply a pause, while the vetting process is
2. People, yes - not muslims.
3. The word 'muslim' doesn't appear anywhere in the EO.

>From the EO itself:
"(II) in a country that is designated by the Secretary of State under
section 4605(j) of title 50
continued in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers
Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 <https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/50/1701> et

<https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22/2780>, section 2371 of title
22 <https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22/2371>, or any other
provision of law, as a country, the government of which has repeatedly
