Change extent of layer?

I have a layer that was created from a geocoding process.  most of the records in the dtabase are in the U.S, but a significant number are in South America.  After initial geocoding, I matched some addresses and also selected points on the map for some of the South American records that did not geocode.  Those records have XY coordinates, but will not display because they are outside of the layer's extent.

How can I solve this?  Can I modify the layer's extent?  If not, can I create a Feature dataset and copy records over?  How do I do this without copying over the bad extent with the records?

It's frustrating, becausse I have valid data in this layer, but can't get it to display.

Thanks in advance fo any help.
