Forget lore, it just doesn't make sense from a gameplay perspective.
The same reason you can't use pull to save Lieutenant Victus.
Technically, you could argue that Victus probably had shields/armor, and pull wouldn't have affected him.
His dwindling health bar from 10 seconds before the scene would like to argue with you.

Has it ever been explained ingame why biotic powers like Pull can't be used on enemies with shields/barriers or armor? If so, the answer is probably tied to why they can't fly.
It makes sense from a gameplay perspective of course but it also makes it clear the power of biotics is severely limited and I would argue that flying is a much harder feat to accomplish than lifting a few kilo's more of body armor.
