“We have the votes,” Mr. McConnell said as he walked into the chamber.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who had expressed concerns about the bill’s effects on federal deficits, announced Friday he’d back the bill after securing an agreement to work on a solution for young illegal immigrants in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Steve Daines of Montana are also supporting the package after winning additional concessions for small businesses. Those changes could be paid for by increasing the planned tax rates on money parked offshore and brought back to the U.S.
