That was only the second time a Latino was the mayor of a major American city, and the first time in almost 150 years. His political career grew and in the '90s he became theÂ Â Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in President Bill Clinton's administration.Â We chatted with Secretary Cisneros about what makes San Antonio special, how its welcoming culture can be a model for the nation, and why this generation will be better off than the last.Â He also shares a personal story about how and why he helped a Dreamer.
