Based on the picture you attached you do not have a coordinate system
assigned to your map document.  So my first set would be to assign the
desired coordinate system to your map before you insert data. If that
fails to fix the problem, then that means the two layers were created
from different sources and may not exactly overlap. You can use the
spatial adjust toolbar to try and force one layer to match the other
using transformations and rubbersheeting.

Dear Shruggies,

How do I set the Geographic Transformation in my ArcMAP Session to avoid
the spatial displacement shown below?
