Abstract
This paper analyzes the legislation and policies on internationalized talents cultivation in the United States in the historical perspective with three tipping points of the Second World War, the Cold War and the September 11 Attacks. Special attention to cultivate internationalized talents began around the Second World War. Some acts and policies were implemented afterwards to strengthen the cultivation of internationalized talents. In order to protect national security after the September 11 Attacks, the internationalization policies of the United States were tightened, seriously affecting the internationalization process of higher education. In the University Presidents Summit on International Education in 2006, Rice, former United States Secretary, emphasized that US should be open to students worldwide and would send more students to other countries. Since then, national policies in the United States have turned to be more in favor of higher education internationalization.
