    B. Congress
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Congress. Congress, which is part of the legislative branch of government, has the power to enforce amendments. This includes proposing and passing laws that align with the amendment and ensuring that they are implemented and upheld. The executive branch, on the other hand, is responsible for enforcing laws but does not have the specific power to enforce amendments. The judicial branch interprets the laws and amendments but does not have the power to enforce them directly. The Box Turtle Club is not a branch of government and therefore does not have the power to enforce amendments.
