There is currently a plan to create off-shore islands specifically with the concept that these would be officially outside the US (more than 12 miles offshore) but enable the creation of technology "startups" that would be funded by US wealthy entrepreneurs.

Here's a link on this concept, titled Blueseed:

Probably not what you had in mind--but these will possibly help people eventually become U.S. citizens

Here's a video on this concept:

One last thing I should point out is that the penalties for not following the US visa rules are usually not extremely severe--but there are exceptions--and are worse in some states/areas than in others.

Not to overly scare people, but here are examples of some of the more extreme cases:
