Why do we house "death row" prisoners for decades?


It costs an average of 55.09 a day to house an inmate in a US detention facility. That equals over $20 thousand dollars a year. After all appeals have been used up and due process has been served, why do we allow these prisoners to use up US tax dollars for decades? And what can we do as a country to change this policy?
