Jews did "arrive" in the Americas at least in the days of Bar Kochva.
There are
Bar Kochva coins in the Americas and even a stone saying for the land of
Judah.
http://www.econ.ohio-state.edu/jhm/arch/barkokhb.htm says that these coins
were identified as modern replicas by a coin expert at the Israel Museum in
Jerusalem.

Similarly Romans "arrived" in the Americas too a Roman bust was discovered
in Mexico.
