Claiming that 1,200 Texas tourists, many visiting Washington on Spring Break trips, are being robbed of a visit to the White House, Sen. John Cornyn Monday released a video that included school children begging President Obama to reinstate the tours.

Several students are shown holding signs that read: "The White House is our house. Please let us visit!"

It's the latest slam on the president's team for shutting the tours during the popular Spring Break season due to the sequester cuts.

In his video, Cornyn shows first lady Michelle Obama calling the White House "the people's house," and vowing to make it "our mission to open up the house."
